Focuses on particulars, moments in normal activities that become larger than themselves under the lens of the poem. Each poem comprises a moment of reflection with the confusions of life; each needs its own space for contemplation in the same way that a small painting wants its own space on the white wall. James A. Zoller has lived in rural western New York since 1984. He teaches writing and literature at Houghton College. In addition to writing and publishing poetry he writes a monthly column for the local newspaper, The Wellsville Daily Reporter.
