'Fault line: 1) a line on a rock surface or the ground that traces a geological fault. 2) a divisive issue or difference of opinion that is likely to have serious consequences.' Poet Gerry Loose's fifth collection maps the 'fault line' dividing man from his environment, centring in this instance on the Faslane submarine base on the eastern shore of Gare Loch in Argyll and Bute, home of the UK's nuclear arsenal. The incongruity of the area's natural beauty coupled with weapons that could reduce it to dust at the push of a button has inspired a book-length poem that probes the delusions of the political and military classes. Loose explores the landscape surrounding Faslane, his hymns to its beauty only throwing into sharper focus its fragility. He describes a land poisoned by the 'deterrent' meant to protect it. In so doing, Loose has reinvented nature poetry for the 21st century, reconnecting with a radical tradition Burns, Byron and Shelley would have recognised and celebrated.
Born in 1948, Gerry Loose has lived in England, Ireland, Spain, Morocco and now Scotland. A slow-moving nomad. His work has involved poetry, agriculture and horticulture. He also designs and makes gardens. His poetry is as likely to appear in these (and ungardened landscapes) as on the page. His previous anthologies were "that person himself" (Shearsman, 2009), "Printed on Water" (Shearsman, 2007), "a measure" (Mythic House, 1996) and "The Elementary Particles" (Taranis, 1993).

The poems of the fourteenth-century Kashmiri mystic Lal Ded, popularly known as Lalla, strike us like brief and blinding bursts of light.

Poetry. "It is not often that one encounters mastery in a debut book of poems, but that is exactly what happens in Chelsea Wagenaar's MERCY SPURS THE BONE, where the poems are crafted into light-filled islands of lyric selfhood, small Edens of conceptual originality and rigorously precise language. Writing in an elliptical style, Wagenaar achieves that articulation of being, that mysterious...
Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. African & African American Studies. LEAVING CLE is made from the detritus of reverse migration. Its poems move from Cleveland to New York City to Tuscaloosa's "schoolhouse door" and back again. They travel and party with a musical Cleveland from Art Tatum's 1920's to Albert Ayler and from Ohio Funk to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. They collage a shifting sense of home and...

Gerry Loose's fifth collection of poetry maps the "fault line" between man and his environment, and takes the area around Faslane submarine base with its nuclear weapons for his setting. Beauty, fragility, aggression and human insensitivity. This is poetry that has a great deal to say.
