Charles Simic

Being part of a journal that likes to blend the confines of genre, I can say that one of my inspirations when I set out on creating this journal was Charles Simic. A poet who blends fantasy and reality, on top of narratives in poetry, he is one of those writers that inspires me whenever I read even a single line of his. I could tell you of all his greatness, but experience it yourself through this reading done in 2005:
