Reviews:

Kevin Killian: Lew Ellingham has found enough twists and turns in old formulae to keep it eternally now, like a heartbeat.  Like a snowflake.  The poems in Black Sand are finely wrought as the filigree of Stevens, as passionate as Dickinson’s dashes and dots.… I can point to Lew Ellingham’s as the kind of career I hope to have, once I wake up and get alert, once I pull myself out of the mire.

Moazzam Sheikh: Lewis Ellingham is our modern day sufi and Black Sand is his sacred book, where every poem is a testament to his engagement with the world around him, the world gone wrong, crumbling right before our eyes, morally and economically, causing humanity suffering.… As always, Ellingham’s poems are ingenious, sober and sensible, rich in history, playful, and touch the heart.

Marilyn Hacker: Ellingham’s keen eye and multiple frames of reference are most often deployed observing and thus bringing to our attention people we might otherwise not see — the indigent, the aged, the half-cracked and the inconsolable — and around them, also clearly in the poet’s frame of vision, the natural world of Northern California, birds, the bay, the sea, birds again, reminding us that all beauty is interconnected, that loss is sometimes redeemed in looking.

“The Collages of Helen Adam” is a compendium of the art work of this musical and dramatic poet and can be ordered from Small Press Distribution or directly for $40.00 from this website: http://furtherotherbookworks.com/index.php/product/the-collages-of-helen-adam-2 — it is beautifully rendered, all but a few pages are illustrations, and the texts (some of which is mine with the title ‘The Arrow’ by Lewis Ellingham) are by James Maynard, Alison Fraser, Samuel R. Delany, & Kristin Prevallet. The worlds of Jack Spicer, Robert Duncan, & the San Francisco of the 1950s – 60s these artists inhabit this rare vision has extraordinary power. The publisher is C.J. Martin in Colorado Springs, CO.

Seen, Unseen is a chronological record of manuscripts over a year and a half approximately, spring 2015 to autumn 2016, most of them a page or two in length. All of them have circulated with friends, often with praise, and one of them, loquat (p. 174 in the text), has recently been published in California by a magazine, Catamaran, emphasizing work and authors on the Pacific coast from the Bay Area northward. Though I notice in the issue loquat is published in (#15, autumn 2016) the work and authors seem to be from everywhere. I suggest one read at random with pleasure as a goal.”

2015 Stories

“Lew Ellingham’s beauteous poem-narratives mimic the world’s great public transportation systems.  From our window seats, the meta-polis teems with the smallness and greatness of life’s peculiar machinations. We’ll see folks we know (more that we don’t); and like boarding passengers, the quotidian queues in no particular order.  But most importantly, and pointedly, there’s never a dull moment.
