Poetry. BRAY by Paul Gibbons is the winner of the 2007 Elixir Press Chapbook Awards. His work has appeared in such publications as The Modern Review, Field, The Massachusetts Review, and Bateau. Dara Weir had this to say: "Just as other noise-making animals do, by our sounds we let one another know we're alive. Poetry arises from this wild cacophony of spirit, will, desire and love. Paul Gibbons exacts from our language sayings heretofore unsaid; his observations are acutely realized in sonic realms and sensible logics. We're lucky to have a new voice breaking us news we need." Paul Gibbons lives in California.
