In the flowing of Susquehanna, language has been re-immersed in its origins.

In the flowing of Susquehanna, language has been re-immersed in its origins. It is a coursing where "this human industry / compressed into earth- / rudders second emptiness / braids a fist." Susquehanna offers an intermingling of meaning's tributaries where our human violations of nature are plunged into the currents of an irreconcilable otherness, "a theft unhands / what had been / (interstitial) / pine-marrowed // phantom limb."



G.C. WALDREP is the author of four collections of poetry, most recently Your Father on the Train of Ghosts (BOA Editions, 2011), a collaboration with John Gallaher. He co-edited Homage to Paul Celan (Marick, 2011) with Ilya Kaminsky and The Arcadia Project: North American Postmodern Pastoral (Ahsahta, 2012) with Joshua Corey. He has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Literature and a Gertrude Stein Award for Innovative American Poetry. He lives in Lewisburg, Pa., where he teaches at Bucknell University, edits the journal West Branch, and serves as Editor-at-Large for The Kenyon Review.
