I'm looking forward to Brady's poetry and "erudite prose." And I love your list of poets in parentheses.

The sentence that ends like this is a rhetorical knockout

<<< Homeric in scope, Yeatsian in intensity, networked in a riot of wine-dark vectors and turning in a phantasmagorical gyre of allusion and erudition that spirals out into the enormous embrace of the music underwriting the everyday.>>

even if I can't follow the metaphor after "spirals." Thumbs up!

Thank you Ursula. Those poets in parentheses are my heroes. And thank you for your kind words, Tony. The metaphor does get a bit mixed after "spirals," but the enthusiasm remains clear! ~DD
