No One


Some other good things said about the chap:


The No One Poems offers a window into how all things are connected across space and time; the view from Christien Gholson’s window is disturbingly clear, and the view stretches beyond every horizon. Gholson’s metaphysical craft rewards readers in ways that linger long after his poems leave their lips. Gholson works where the fabric between worlds is thin and translucent; his vivid imagery, and distinctly New Mexican voice, work in tandem to tenderly and unflinchingly shine the light of darkness into all our hearts.

Christien Gholson’s The No One Poems offers a language alive with all the senses, including the mind and the heart. These poems leave nothing out, embracing each moment and each being they encounter: A dying pinyon tree, hare shit, meteor showers, Li Po, a coyote fence, men behind podiums at a press conference, the dead, hummingbird moths. Reading these meditations on the mysteries being everything while being no one, you may find yourself moved to “…send love out to everyone…”
