Singer, Sean :
Sean Singer was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, and grew up in Florida. He received his MFA from Washington University in 1999 and has won scholarships to Bread Loaf and the Catskills Poetry Workshop. He currently teaches English at New Jewish High School in Waltham, Massachusetts.
"Many poets would sell their souls for one true poem. Sean Singer has a different relationship with Mephistopheles. He gives his soul away--and it's given back--and so his poems are freely his; and they are true. Some are purely lyrical; some are written in tongues; they are all written in poetry. Too much verse in either tradition--the tradition of meters and the tradition of free verse--isn't written in poetry at all. Much 'poetry' isn't poetry (thus the need for deals with the devil). Too much of it is thematics or contrivance. Not Sean Singer's poetry. Mr. Singer isn't afraid to write metaphor (dark planed & luminary), to test the voice--that poor arrow--, or to try to write beautiful lines. A reader may think, while reading Singer's poems, of the improvisations of jazz. A reader will be reminded of the beautiful motions of the mind. Sean Singer's book is a revelation."
--Carol Frost, poet
"Singer has arrived on his way to somewhere, and the future we imagine for him is based in the pleasure he gives in Discography. Yale Younger Series judge W. S. Merwin has chosen wisely. . . . [A] fine book."
--William Corbett, Boston Phoenix

Photo of John Coltrane, 1963
Otherworldly and outreaching,
A Parnassus of noise with a serious
Glint of inestimable
Worry on his face,
O Coltrane what will ring
From your pious
Gleaming Antillean Euphonia, so capable,
Swift, with no trace,
No trace of stillness? The blur
Of the gray-gray and gris-gris
Flows hornward to the black bell
Of the saxophone, a cylinder
Of joy, an empurpled sea
Of heaven ebbing into hell.
