  Tod Thilleman
Tod Thilleman was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin. He moved to New York at the age of 18 and worked for a brief period with Pace Editions. After the abandoned Williamsburg waterfront, paper-making, the typewriter, protests and marches, the guitar, Reagan and the 1980's, he started the reading series at CBGB's 313 Gallery on the Bowery. He now produces (with his wife, Katya Edwards) fiction, poetry, and art books through their small press Spuyten Duyvil.



from Between

Tod Thilleman
Let be the manifestation you seek
For the world's oyster's universal undoing
Physical charge the lightining beam
Bolt upon memory's real world
Balancing perdition the human course
Between failure of love and domination of a name
Whose seduction bothered the eye of man
Where he left, pursuing Daemonic trace
Rumoring age for the shape of a petal
The garland of which mind bent to history
Handing forth scriptural assault
To henchmen delivering one citadel
Down-clutching my robe of white in servitude
Air of a long and bloody battle's end
Releasing erotic stamp from dandelion stem
All she ever wore won't form I'll catch
And bring bright life
To the rime of men.
