Incandescently tranquil, the poems of Norman Fischer neither
confront nor confirm, peferring to give company along the way.
Those of us who think about the reality of things do not do so because
we have plenty of time. reality is not a fixed and immutable attribute
of things but a process, a fast or slow unfolding. And we don't know with
certainty that reality has been given limitless time. Norman Fischer's
urgent sensitivity to the metamorphosis at hand makes his writing real.
