Poetry. "What is 'common ground?' How does it come about in a nation? In a poem? In Schickling's project, limning the portals between expression and repression, common ground is sought and thwarted, and sought again, bringing to bear the grand project of all our poetry--what does it say? How do we mean? What if a flock of our voices, civic and private, were let loose, flurrying and colliding in the echo chamber of the poem? "--Eleni Sikelianos. "Jared Schickling, the Poetry of the imagination expansive, no master, not forms that restrict, not the commercialism of print. Not the Government of Poetry, with this an anarchistic being is where all might of the elemental as a construction without end with wisdom and magic, behold begins a future"--Michael Basinski.
