¹ The Paris Review feature, which is indeed decades old, was part of an attempt (unsuccessful to my eye) to defibrillate the journal in hopes that a spark of life would get the blood pumping again. The 39-year-old appearance in Poetry  is part of my own quietist past, of which I have written more than once. See also publications in TriQuarterly, Southern Review, Poetry Northwest and The Chicago Review from that same general period. Ironically, Henry Rago, who took the work for Poetry, passed over many truly quietist pieces of mine and ended up using an imitation of Robert Kelly’s poetry – I was already transitioning away from that world.
