unnumbered meditation

unnumbered meditation

cantilevered being

there is a higher ground

prophets speak to it

the cave of leavings

--Constance Stadler has been writing, publishing, and editing poetry from the prehistoric epoch of print journals to modern e-times. As a political anthropologist specializing in North Africa and a violinist, her influences are multiform. Work in formative years with the late poet Gwendolyn Brooks was seminal, but no less so than Sufi Dervish dancers, and the challenges of mastering Bruch's first concerto. Her book Paper Cuts marked the debut of Calliope Nerve Media's literature arm. Her latest book with author Rich Follett is Responsorials.
