Description: ldquo;James Galvin has a voice and a world, perhaps the two most difficult things to achieve in poetry.rdquo;- The NationJames Galvinrsquo;s poems have zero percent body fat. His tightly controlled and detailed poems evoke measured optimism in a spare existential world where certain characters-ldquo;The Mastermindrdquo; and the ldquo;Members of the Boardrdquo;-are recurring shadows. Like fables suggesting new truths, personal narratives and love poems intertwine to confront the various paradoxes of domestic life, art, and politics, and the line ldquo;All poems are love poemsrdquo; leans hard against ldquo;Some poems are better off dead.rdquo; In As Is , both claim their hard-won place.I think black holes are just plastic Garbage bags blowing down the midnight highway That is the Universe. There arenrsquo;t as many dimensions as we thought. A black hole can disappear anything that nears it. We all know that. The farthest away Irsquo;ve ever been is in my own home, Finally cleaning out my daughterrsquo;s room So another little girl can live here. The black plastic bag I held in my hand Was infinitely capacious. I mean I could throw anything in there.James Galvin is a Wyoming rancher and on the permanent faculty at the Iowa Writersrsquo; Workshop. He is the author of six books of poetry, a novel, and the acclaimed memoir The Meadow. He lives in Tie Siding, Wyoming, and Iowa City, Iowa.
