Daniel Talamantes

      It is with great joy I present to you this month’s feature, my poetry colleague of whom I am most proud, Daniel Talamantes. The poems selected from this issue derive from his most recent manuscript, completed in March, upon receiving his Bachelor’s in literature and poetry. Dan’s use of the romantic vernacular and second-person sentiment provide the perfect medium for his communication of ontological musing, dream symbolism, and metaphysics. Much of his poetics strive to construct ethereal coordination, making tangible a connection between the motions of the heavens and being human.

      Through a determination to re-connect the heart and brain, his written meditations detach voice from the politics of opinion, and freely affirm truth. His honest representation of situational subtlety within the contemporary moment offers a brilliant outlook onto a forthcoming generation of artists and writers. Daniel’s prolific creativity and endurance with words offers us the promise to see and hear his manifestations for years to come.
