No Other Business Here is the first major collection of the short poems exchanged between John Brandi and Steve Sanfield, two poets deeply situated in their respective geographies: New Mexico's Rio Grande Valley and California's Sierra Nevada. These plaintive, often whimsical three-liners are full of chuckles and wakeups. Originally penned on scraps, postcards, in the margins of personal correspondence, even scribbled inside passports during world travels, these missives record moments of spark, fleeting essences of a transitory world, unavoidable folly revealing truths at the core of slapstick stumbles. Nothing sacred here! These poets write to stay alive, to see where they ™ve been, to give clearing for the next step.
