In these enigmatic poems, de la Torre’s mode of direct address seeks to put the reader into a trance.
Anselm Berrigan's books of poetry include Notes from Irrelevance (Wave, 2011), Free Cell (City Lights, 2009), Skasers (Flowers & Cream, 2012 w./ John Coletti), and Some Notes on My Programming (Edge, 2006). He is the poetry editor for The Brooklyn Rail, co-editor of Selected Poems of Ted Berrigan, and from 2003-2007 was Artistic Director of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church. He has been posting line by line, with occasional interrutions, a long poem called Primitive State on twitter for the past several months (@wystandoll). Should be complete next week.
