BARRY MCKINNON: “the task of poetry? What I’ve wanted. The poem itself (an artifact/real place)—& I’ve also wanted the very moments of its act & its energy (integration/location)—to include, as well, a necessary disintegration of its conscious and unconscious premises. By this I mean the practice I see in George Stanley’s consistently remarkable work: he writes/builds a line that seems dismantled at the same time—to reveal accurate processes of mind and life moving to their jagged truths.”
