Excerpt

hey, I'm just the world not the judge or the wilderness no, his other, as I am a dolphin forming backwards seeking to swim by air and wait for the world to respond to sleek challenge as no one dares the dinosaur inside my sombrero that pulls down wilderness we ever wrestle after the loss of form throne the sky, here it is as it is become the world before and after as the world appears inside a somewhat as the hotel pool that calls us up and out perhaps the water will become permanent the stables calmed like owls the world embraced to its mood by Tom Blood

I’ve been plundering material from Tom’s Sky Position for the last couple years for a small press imprint I run out of London called La Reata. I must say he’s the only poet that ever really sparks comment. There are no ‘weak’ poems in this book. In fact so startling and consistent is Tom’s madness here that the entire book reads as one long poetic discourse. Just read the table of contents out loud and you’ll see what I mean.

Ariel D. Beller, editor, La Reata

"Review" by , "Clearly, if ever there was a magic casement, it is Blood's. Here, perception becomes a beautiful act of absolute sympathy and attention a continuous evidence of perfect compassion. Never once does Blood diminish or deform his subjects. Rather, he puts his syntax and his self entirely at the service of their well-beloved motion. These are poems for the world, in all its wildness, in all its nearness."
"Review" by , "The most provocative and surreal poetry that I have ever heard. These poems are powerful in that they assume no authority, they assume no power over life, they are simply Tom's way of saying, 'I am watching, and watching closely.' This is true poetry."
"Review" by , "Blood's poetry is extremely abstract and at one point illustrates an eternal line of hippies marching over the bodies of poets."
"Review" by , "Tom Blood's The Sky Position, a loose and rambling piece, is the delightful rumination of an enchanted wanderer."
"Synopsis" by , 71 poems in limited paperback first edition with errata slip.
