Post on Pacific Rim Poetics

For some reason, I did not get my Pacific Rim Poetics essay transferred over from OrganicPoetry.org to this here site. Today I corrected that. Here are the two epigraphs:

If I open a magazine of contemporary poetry I rarely hear John Dryden, but almost always Li Po.
– Andrew Schelling

… the Pacific Coast of America faces the Far East, culturally as well as geographically…
– Kenneth Rexroth
