"Gewanter's poetry offers a sense of obstacles, and of obstacles not overcome but ridden and thus dealt with, and is nowhere better illustrated than in 'Conduct of Our Loves.' Read this poem in the book store and you will want to buy the book." --Thom Gunn "from" "Conduct of Our Loves" If the Angler fish can find a female he attaches his jaws to her genitals: their blood-systems unite, his heart withers, and he degenerates into a pulsing bag of sperm, fertilizing her unto death. Still she swims through the vaults of black waters, her angler glowing from its forehead stalk of flesh: a Diogenes barrelled by her mate and her young, prowling in God's hunger . . . ("Conduct of Our Loves" first appeared in "Ploughshares, " vol. 18, no. 4) David Gewanter teaches writing at Harvard University. His poetry and prose appear in several journals, including "Threepenny Review, Tikkun, Ploughshares, Triquarterly, " and "Agni, " and in anthologies such as "The National Poetry Competition" and "New Voices" (Academy of American Poets).
