Her Gorgeous Organ of Tremor and Pulse: Mary Biddinger in The Nepotist

We’ve got news for Mary Biddinger fans: Two of her poems, “Birth of a Vessel” and “Calamity”, have been published in The Nepotist with quite an incredible introduction from The Nepotist himself. Here is one of our favorite passages:

Let the record show that The Nepotist might be a little bit in love with her… These poems– nay, these two seductions– justify beyond any fickle hiccups of the heart the bright and blazing torch I carry for this poet.  And while I’m on the subject of heart, I think it’s Mary Biddinger’s own that make these poems beat: that muscle of coyly meted-out craft, the lub-dub of details divulged at the precise instant they will do either the most good or the most damage, her gorgeous organ of tremor and pulse.

Mary Biddinger is the author of Saint Monica, which was a finalist for the Black River Chapbook Competition and will be published by Black Lawrence Press in 2011.
