Therers"s radiance from all these poems."-John Wilkinson"Miles Champion uses just the necessary words, and puts them in interesting places: definitely hard to film."-Tom Raworth"Walls"Walls give bound to a susceptible formalismSpring bends the show of things to a brain-like sourceSigns of rust abandon a whistle or paint chipProblems are prefigured like flowersRoofs frisk in the airBridges flip an aesthetic switchLeaves transfigure maples and aldersDust comes into earExtremities milling aboutMiles Champion moved to New York City from London in 2002.
