GONE FISHIN'

Eyewear thinks that the whole point of July is to take it easy, soak up the sun, and stay outside as much as possible, reading, relaxing, and sipping lemonade.  As this is our ethos, the blog will resume in August, with poems by Stephen Burt, and reviews of many new and recent poetry collections.  Keep looking out for poetry in the meantime, and enjoy our numerous previous posts!
