9780692478516: Small Consolations

Gary Glauber's poems explore the ever shifting terrain of human interstices: between what we want and what we get, between what we recall and what we forget, between what we hoped and what happened, and the largest one--how we manage to be present and absent at the same time. Life never clicks shut in these poems and that is their understandably provisional wisdom. The rueful human comedy is alive in these poems. --Baron Wormser, Poet and Novelist

Reading these poems, I thought of math and architecture and song; the beautiful math of words, grammar, and language; the strong architecture of thought, story, and time; and the painful song of loss, dreams, and love. That's what I found in these poems--the world.
--Jonathan Ames, Author of Wake Up, Sir!

In an age when fear mongering seems to have gripped the 24 / 7 news cycle, Gary Glauber encourages us to pay attention to the fleeting moments as they hold the potential for poetry and beauty--if only we would take notice. "Examining the darkness," he reminds us, "it's hard to stay focused." Instead, he suggests, it is the "little pangs of hyper-reality," the "what gets said in passing" and those who "desire to be no one of note" that are most important. His poems rightly point our attention toward the "silent millions...quietly tweaking life's balance in a panoply of brilliantly undistinguished ways" and encourages us to live among them.
--Jenn Monroe, Author of In Anticipation of Grief and Something More Like Love
