~

A poet who communes with absence that we might gauge how much space it deserves, Blas Falconer is a constructor of the spiritually perfect poem. In Forgive the Body This Failure, poems born to vigil and event become lullabies that sing from doom its preordained spontaneity. That ask form what form it assumes. This is a work of response, so kindly imagined, that it enters the world as a wound does- carried in its own making. Be finality the blood of origin, so bless Falconer for these tertiary balms of answer and inquiry and so praise this voice for adding its removal to songs that reveal the withheld.
