"How often have I lain beneath a roof of trees and sestinas,
Sestinas and trees, the chiasmus of my timid hopes decked
Out in the styles of the day,
Losing myself in novels of corporeal sunshine and a home . . ."
-- Noelle Kocot, "The Poem of Force" (from Sunny Wednesday, Wave Books)
"as if one
world could be
created from another
could touch flesh"
-- Charles Borkhuis, "Parallel Universe" (from Savoir-Fear, Meeting Eyes Bindery)
