A year arrives, turns, departs, and is replaced by another version of itself, layer upon layer as a life is lived, as memory settles like sediment over the days.
Now a new year is arriving, and for the fifth time we are making a calendar to mark this cultural decision of renewal. Inside these pages are voices and images that touch us with their beauty and truth, that sing.

Though we experience the years as moving faster, a moment stays mysteriously elastic. These poems are moments that will expand to enrich and deepen the coming year of days. And we are grateful to be able to share them with you. Nothing feels steady and indisputable in the way that the months of a year do. The rhythm of a year passing may feel like twelve wheels turning in succession, or water flowing over twelve rocks in a stream.

It may appear like twelve messengers bearing letters of similar length—but not content—or twelve clouds passing across the sky, each a distinct shape. One unit of time, one month or week or moment, may feel endless — it may elongate itself out and out until its flow reverses and returns to where it began. It may also slip by all but unnoticed, as if it had never existed. Like the feeling of time passing, we know that the structures that mark its passing are not fixed; they have evolved wildly since the beginning of human consciousness, and have been radically different across continents and cultures.
These poems may serve as reminders of this: that the structures shaping the cadences and rhythms of our lives — like language — are not fixed either, and that language itself can be a window — or twelve windows — into real freedom. Time is both circular and linear.
The last day of the year returns us to the first day of the next. The length of the days is repeated as the earth tilts back and forth, and our ecology responds. The rains return around the same time, the heat, the snow. And yet the days move forward, from one destination to the next. Calendars are our ancient way of making sense of this.
Pam lives on the California Central Coast. Seven poets from three countries, forty pages each, and no rules—this is Burning Gorgeous , an anthology of new, experimental poetry edited and published by the poets themselves. In contrast to most of the western poetry published today, these poems have been written and published outside academia by poets who found each other in an Internet poetry forum. Burning can be passionate or corrosive or destructive, but it is always full-force.
Gorgeous things are more than beautiful; they seem flawed or even ugly at first, because the new is always dissonant, always strange. Visit the Burning Georgous webpage for information about the authors. Figments: A Note to the Reader.
