John Dollis:

Runaway Spoon
PO Box 3621
Port Charlotte FL, 33949


Dollis writes poetry that appears abstract and elusive on the surface but is rich in the depths. He is dealing with the fundamental means by which we arrive at a sense of ourselves, define ourselves, and communicate this sense to the world at large. But rather than taking shelter in pure philosophy he incorporates elements of the everyday, giving his work a connectedness that normally is missing from such studied introspection. He introduces an idea then detaches from it, moves around it, rediscovers it evolving into the fibers of his own intelligence, a fascinating process to observe and participate in.--Jake Berry
