My pal, artist and poet Diana Magallón, made this illustration to accompany my poem “Janes.”

Jane is taking that which cannot be opened
Jane, that uses no words

this is taking Jane into the nameless
and, into the naming of Adam and the earth



















Diana writes: “Ilustración realizada para el poema ‘Janes’ contenido en el libro The Valise del poeta y artista Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino.

Hay amigos a los que siempre es grato volver a encontrar.

A los del muro para acá, felices fiestas, y a los del muro para allá también.”

“Illustration made for the poem ‘Janes’ contained in the book The Valise by the poet and artist Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino.

There are friends who are always happy to meet again.

To those of the wall here, happy holidays, and those of the wall there too.”

The language of these poems is at once precise and given to mystery. This is pannarrativity, the world writ large. Things are named and made new—given new meaning for both poet and reader. These are poems that see the world as one great narration. This is logoclasody, poetry as discourse—where the reader is a conscious participant in the breaking out of signification. Where, as Carey Scott Wilkerson writes in his foreword, “knowledge and experience . . . show their metaphysical hand.”

“The Valise is one of the most important books of poetry in our time.” —Daniel Y. Harris, Chairman of the Board of Directors of The New York Quarterly Foundation

“Gregory Vincent St Thomasino writes with a philosopher’s precision. Perhaps he is a refugee from paradox, finding asylum in these two-line stanzas so spare and direct. Fastidious in gathering particulars he makes statements when statements are needed and knows the time and place for a fragment. This, this and this: these poems are a lesson in ostensive definition. What St Thomasino keeps in his valise calls out in a restrained but singular voice for undivided attention.” —Alan Halsey

Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino was born in Greenwich Village, New York, and was raised in both the city and in the country across the Hudson River in New Jersey. He was educated at home, eventually to enter Fordham University where he received a degree in philosophy. In 2009 he received the Distinguished Scholar Award from the Doctor of Arts in Leadership program at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire. His poetry and prose have appeared in OCHO, Barrow Street, jubilat, New York Tyrant, Verse Wisconsin, In Posse Review, Big Bridge, Cordite Poetry Review, The Germ, Onedit, Pindeldyboz, Xcp: Cross-Cultural Poetics, Rattapallax, Empty Mirror, GAMMM and EOAGH and in various anthologies including the Georgia anthology Stone, River, Sky (Negative Capability Press, 2015) and the language art anthology The Dark Would (Apple Pie Editions, 2013). His digital poetry has been anthologized in the Brazilian book Poesia Eletrônica: negociações com os processos digitais (2008). His e-chaps include The Logoclasody Manifesto, Six Comets Are Coming and The Galloping Man (Eratio Editions 2008, 2009, 2010). He is the author, most recently, of a volume of poetry entitled The Valise (Dead Academics Press, 2012). In his spare time he writes at his blog, The Postmodern Romantic, and edits the online poetry journal, Eratio.
