Originally begun as letters to a colleague, Albert Flynn DeSilver's writing began to transform into a whimsical epistolary experiment that turned writing a traditional letter into a unique poetic exercise addressing emotions, elements of landscape, and the act of writing itself. The poems compiled and presented in "Letters To Early Street" represent fresh, lyrical and inventively articulate acts of communication. "Letters To Early Street" is emotionally rewarding, intellectually entertaining, and very highly recommended reading for anyone who appreciates the art and craft of writing poetry. 'Letter Forty Three': Dear equivalence,//I can feel a letter/welling up from that massive//fathom at the cusp/of what breath borders//upon hesitant/heights, here//where my absences/are all up to spec.//Soon this letter will shed its dilemma,/like an exasperated lemon-cloud--//Then the diehard physicalists/will have to absorb//the difficulty of such spendy/ephemera. How I enter//endless confrontation with no/emblem but skin.
