Joseph R. Trombatore’s Comments

These poems are from a set of 58 ekphrastic poems I wrote between last December & April.  I was in a “white heat” writing one, sometimes 3 a day.  I had always wanted to do a series of this type.  Actually, I originally wanted to visit a specific museum, with a couple of other poets, & see what the 3 of us could come up with.  Hurricane Ike, and a corporate layoff put the jimmy in my plans.  So I moved up to the Hill Country & dove into some rather incredible art & these are from my latest effort.
