New poetry

Here is poetry of subtlety and scale: it’s a record in equal measure of the sweeping and of the small. We are given a view of the world through a time-lapse camera, a pair of binoculars, a glass-bottomed boat, and we are made to see the movement in what we thought was stillness.

Reviews / Endorsements

“A little smoky and mysterious, Cecilia Llompart’s work is lean but full—maximally minimal. Everything her mind touches seems more mystical, more alive. Her poems convey a gratitude, a joy less stated than implied by currents of appetite and love, romantic love and a great wide love of it all.”—Bob Hicok

CECILIA LLOMPART was born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. She received her BA from Florida State University and her MFA from the University of Virginia. She doesn’t consider any one place home, preferring to think of herself as a traveling poet that belongs to the world.
