DANNY ROSEN : THE TUSCAN JOURNALS & OTHER POEMS
I took a trip to Neeli… Italy was in the background. From various notebooks, landscapes, cafés, frantic roads… The Tuscan Journals arose. It is at heart an homage to poet Neeli Cherkovski, with whom I traveled in the summer of 2018. I asked of his plans for the journey and he replied, “we'll get on the plane, fly to Milan, go through customs, get the car, drive to Bagnone, get our room, have something to eat, and go to sleep. In the morning we’ll get up, go to the bar, have our coffee, and… get to work.” And so we did. It is invigorating to be in Neeli’s presence. He is a poet. He makes poems throughout the day, every day. His energy is infectious.
