What is love that some people race from it; some die without it; and a few recreate it in art? With love you re like that little old lady who lifted the Volkswagen that slipped off a tire jack, trapping her grandson. You're Herculean. Abundantly alive. Lost and found. You hear the mermaids singing. You become impervious to pain... or simply happy. For the second volume of the Fearless Poetry Series, we've collected some of the best new poetry about love, longing, and desire, from lit-porn to romantic elegies.... from the Foreword

About the Author:

TOUCHING: Poems of Love, Longing, and Desire is Vol. Two of the excellent Fearless Poetry Series. The co-editors have collected some of the best new poetry written about love, longing, and desire, from lit-porn to romantic elegies. Some of the contributors are published in literary magazines such as The Hudson Review, Paris Review, and Poetry, and have won prestigious awards and grants. Others have great talent but remain unknown. The contributors reveal themselves as sexually promiscuous barflies, talk about "the breakthrough of pure joy" and are seduced by "this slow-burning that fills me completely." Between the covers of TOUCHING are voices from Norway to Wyoming who have been chosen in blind readings, based on merit alone. Poetry is the natural form of expression for love, longing, and desire, and this collection is an excellent guide to something that actually matters.
