There’s a reason why The Danger Is Seduction is a “collection.” Look at it this way: one chocolate chip cookie is delicious. Two or three? Nearly as yummy. But wolfing ten or a dozen? Not a sane, single-sitting project. Ditto with page after page of Shakespearean sonnets consumed one after the other: a sure route to mind mush. And double ditto for book-long collections of poetry contrived to share a single theme, mood and/or form. For me, anyway. So I vary the theme in Seduction. I vary the mood. I vary the form. To avoid monotony. But also because each poem has its own completeness. As for the import of the whole of what I’ve written, here or elsewhere, too early to say. My journey’s not over.
