“Christopher Reilly's new collection of poems, One Night Stanzas, delves beyond the wordplay of its title and serves the reader engaging poems. Smart and seductive, Reilley's work explores the reality and depth of attraction, desire, passion, looking, loving, and loss, and their experience at differing human life stages. Both intense and feather-light, with a knowing, palpable sense of humor threading throughout the collection, One Night Stanzas offers powerful imagery that lingers; consider this: ‘Our love is friendship caught fire.’"
~ Liz Ciampa, What Is Left and Good For Everyday Use
Steven Ablon is a psychiatrist whose main purpose as a poet is( in his words) “to break your heart.” Ablon, a Harvard Medical School faculty member who is well-seasoned in the practice of psychoanalysis, is acquainted with heart break. In his poetry he wants his words to be strongly evocative. He wants to reach the reader on a visceral level. We will discuss his latest collection of poetry, Dinner in the Garden.
