"Antonio Machado said, 'Every poet should create for himself a metaphysics which he need not expound, but which will lie implicit in his work.' What lies implicit in Apostrophes III: alone upon the earth, is a deep belief in the sacredness of the moment, the voices of that moment. E.D. Blodgett's poetry gives us revelations, the depth of human experience when we 'pass into ourselves,' the silence of ourselves, stillness and rapture, 'the sleeping that we are.' Here is the grace of seeing and listening, the ecstasy of understanding. Here is being and time, both roses rising through flesh." Don Domanski
