Alan Toltzis’s poems explore different aspects of the nature of the universe. They are close examinations, interrogations, and extrapolations. His stories are earth bound. Nature, whether it be birds or trees, is transfigured by his language. The moon appears a lot in his poems too, as a dream motif, or perhaps a quest or a prayer. He brings the ordinary (such as forays into a supermarket aisle) into grand narratives. In doing so, he grounds us. He engages with the universe in both small and big ways. -Irene Toh, Poet and Editor.
