Daniel Staniforth's book of poems Weaver in the Sluices is an intermixing of zones where the light of the waking body rises and transmixes its power with falling uranian whispers. These poems exist at the cusp where both realities overspill and condense, making fleeting forays into the unsayable. - Will Alexander // In Weaver in the Sluices, Daniel Staniforth pulls variously from Bardic tradition, contemporary lament, and surrealist landscapes to "filter the nutrients of thought." The poet invokes erotic passion and political protest alike, all while navigating the "midriff of the sun," "star-widths of fancy," and the "nape of the sea." In these poems, such wonders shift continually between foreground and background to portray a world where, ultimately, "the hollows subsume the shape." - Elizabeth Robinson
