As much as this era is defined by division – even in the poetry world – most poets and writers share far more commonalities than differences, even if they are from different regions. Such complex similarities across geographical distance and wandering-bard careers in difference are reunited in Cross-Strokes: Poetry Between Los Angeles and San Francisco, a recent California poetry anthology published by Otis Books/Seismicity Editions. Subtitled, “Poetry between Los Angeles and San Francisco,” the collection is comprised of 35 poets and many more specters of comparison.
