Poetry. MUSAICS is a book of poems about art and the experience of viewing art in museums. "In Burt Kimmelman's poems, form calls deeply to form as though the works of art, the paintings and sculptures of the titles, lifted one to the very brim of the language where one could speak, not museum notes, but of a life caught whole" Michael Heller. "Kimmelman is a looker and a seer, a classicist and a thoroughly contemporary man. He experiences the world through the eyes and on the tongue and at the ear. These poems are a museum of his mind on fire with perceptions, perspectives, and insights" Michael Stephens.
