bio


Mani Suri

    Harold Lorin is just now trying to write poetry and fiction. His recent forays can be found on-line at Seismic Fish, Nice Stories, and The Blue House. He's published numerous books and articles in Computer Technology and Science. He lives primarily in New York City.
    Lorin travels extensively for work and pleasure, thinks truth lies only in fiction (although there are good moments for reconstructionist historians), and is still trying to develop a personal experiment to test if the world is round.
    His favorite poets are are Billy Collins, Mark Strand, W.S. Merwin, Elizabeth Bishop, Wallace Stevens, Alfred Tennyson, and John Milton.
    Otherwise he is "only an aging American who knows little of life."

   

 

Virgin

Now the blue-clad Virgin listens,


In apparent unsurprise,


To what the kneeling angel


Eyes averted, came to tell.




How much is she told now?


What does she understand?


Has she heard the word “Golgotha?”


Has she heard “the Son of Man?”





She seems calm for her age and settled.


Has she heard this all before?


Are those Essene scrolls or


Yeat’s Second Coming on the lecturn?
