The glade today travels off-shore to Galatea Resurrects, where I swim in the waters of engagement and review the marvelous poem-chap(s) pictured above. Click, please and please again, to go!

Galatea Resurrects, a love-site of poetry reviews nurtured and worked by Eileen Tabios, is where I first published full-length reviews of poetry. That was way back (not!) in 2006. It’s a joyful privilege to return there today, and I am happy to direct you there, to read a bit about Much Like You Shark, by Logan Ryan Smith (please click here to go!).

The Red Triangle is the colloquial name of a roughly
triangle-shaped region off the coast of northern California,
extending from Bodega Bay, north of San Francisco,
out slightly beyond the Farallon Islands, and down to
the Big Sur region, south of Monterey. The area has
a very large population of marine mammals, such as
elephant seals, harbor seals, sea otters, and sea lions,
which are favored meals of great white sharks.

Thanks much John, and xoxo back to you. I have LRS's most recent chap -- Tracks, published near the very end of 2009 (picked that one up at Books & Bookshelves as well) -- and am hoping to get to it quicker than three years from now . . .
