Together at last ...

We can communicate and create effectively only if there is a place where language can refine itself to say things with exactness while still preserving their richness and multivocality. As our present economic crisis shows, if our currency is replaced by dishonest derivatives, we will be ruined: true poetry is the hard currency of communication, a language that keeps its promises and honors its bonds.
