 “Love Never Always,” Selected Poems, Ithuriel’s Spear, San Francisco

Love Never Always
ISBN-10 : 0974950211
ISBN-13 : 978-0974950211

These startling poems span the final decade of last century and the first years of the present one. They reveal a strong voice fully attuned to its own time and process. Torphy’s poems, articles, and critical reviews have appeared in such publications as Sebastian Quill, ArtWeek, Expose, and High Performance. He is an art curator living in the San Francisco Bay area. Roberta Loach, editor of Visual Dialog, says “These words are meditative and move to the center of everyday living, loving, being.”
