Moss is oceanic: his poems upward thrust, crest, crash, and upward thrust back like waves. His voice echoes the growth of the outdated testomony, the fluty trill of Greek mythology, and the gongs of chinese language rituals as he writes approximately love, nature, conflict, oppression, and the miracle of language. He addresses the God of the Jews, of the Christians, and of the Muslims with awe and familiarity, and chants to lesser gods of his personal invention. In each excellent poem, each music to existence, attractive existence, Moss, by means of turns giddy and sorrowful, expresses a sacred sensuality and an earthy holiness. Or placing it in a different way: here's a brain working in outdoor, unimpeded through model or compelled thematic concentration, profoundly catholic in viewpoint, straight away available and erudite, necessarily compelling. All of that is to suggest Moss's skill to take part in and regulate completely those poems whereas resisting the impulse to middle himself in them. This differentiates his appealing paintings from a lot modern breast-beating. Moss is an artist who embraces the probabilities of exultation, appreciation, reconciliation, of utmost tenderness. As such he lays down a dedication to a standard, worldly morality towards which all beings gravitate.
