“Each of these marvelous poems engages as instantly as a photograph: you read two or three words and you’re on the scene, recoiling in horror as Trotsky is murdered or twisting uncomfortably as your daughter buys her first bra. There’s no need to ‘develop’ Stephen Gibson’s pictures; they enter your mind so fast that you can’t help feeling that what’s happening on the page has already happened and that, very likely, you were there when it did. He’s a poet for other poets to learn from, for no one else writing today uses language as economically or to more immediate effect.”

―David Kirby

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Portrait of My Daughter in the Park"

How old are you? Old as war and invasion,
old as Syracusan women who have lost their sons,
though you can't know this yet. So, you are young,
young as sunlight, although at times your light is brass.
What brass? The brass of your pelvis,
when the small boys follow after you.
It is then you change into a sparrow,
dusting your tiny wings with strangers,
until I take you home.
