A blog aiming to write New Formalism Poetry. Also included are other literary forms. It is titled after James Salter's Epitaph: ART IS LIFE RESCUED FROM TIME, the last sentence he wrote (headstone = public record). The background is the cover: "Water Mill Fog", by Jane Wilson, the Avatar is a portrait of James Salter smiling. Why do most poets read James Salter? Jim inspires me with his voice: the way he constructs his sentences and his use of metaphor.
