Frank Stanford sitting on a cumulonimbus near the gate that bypasses Purgatory

Thanks to Radius for the publication of my elegy to Frank Stanford. Stanford was a searing, shattered poet. I highly recommend his collected works What About This. It's a book that can be read cover-to-cover or by randomly opening to an astounding page. He was C.K. Wright and Lucinda William's lover and confidante. For some background on Stanford, I suggest this New Yorker article.

Praise for wandering in puzzle boxes

“What are you looking for? I think you'll find it here in Richard H. Fox's second poetry collection, wandering in puzzle boxes. They're all present and accounted for: the poems of love and loss, health and healing, identity and homage, the lyrics and the narratives intertwined. When this speaker tells me, "I want to wear Coke-bottle glasses, corneas blue whale eyes," I believe him. In fact, I'd follow this man down Alligator Alley and the Massachusetts Turnpike. I'd stand beside him in "the mourner's waiting line," share a beer while "a folk singer/belts out francophone lyrics over a dreadnought." I say I would, but I already have. Put your thumb out, and hitch this humble, honest ride.” - Julie Marie Wade, author of When I Was Straight: Poems and Postage Due: Poems & Prose Poems
