Poetry. Prose poems. "Nature makes leaps; history makes leaps; and the poetry of John Olson makes leaps. The series is exponential: Olson's rejuvenation of realism follows the nonlinear lightening-path between world and word. Here, the simplest ingredients interact to produce unprecedented complexities, global cloud-systems of passion and insight.
