"I have spent most of my life in small-town Illinois. It has been good for me to live where I can see a long way in all directions, and where the sky goes on forever. I would not enjoy being hemmed in by mountains, shoved up against an ocean, or surrounded by a desert. The ordered simplicity... has certainly been a big influence in my poetry."
--Poet Dave Etter, artistic statement, "An Illinois Portfolio"
