Sample text

Still, sometimes, inside her winter burns, And small worlds are clothed in fire by her hands' touch. Page 39 Cradle Song: A Found Poem An "intelligence test" used to establish "mental and hereditary illness" in Germany from 1933. Some 320,000350,000 people were sterilised in accordance with these dubious criteria. The Racial State What is your name? What are you? Where is this place? Who brought you here? Who are the people around you? Where does the sun rise? What does it cost to send a letter?

Someone has shoved a ladder down for me. They'll burn it sure; henceforth I will wear gloves. The wood is rough, splinters sting my hands. My eyes tear as I move up into light. My body is too present, too heavy, Not light and ghostly as I had imagined. No magic then inside the priest's slow drone. The world is neither more beautiful nor more cruel, Only I have been removed a little distance.  I forbid you To touch children or give them anything.  The priest's lips Are pale and thin, the ashen color of berries Taken by early frost some merchants try to sell.

And it's not that I am shy or even Impatient; only what is there to say?  And then, there's space. I rise early, dress, and trudge through snow, Burning to ask one question about one poem, But the poet's late and when she comes, there are These introductions as if our names could matter. And then, questions that crowd close into her answers, Offending my puritan sense of order: Each voice contained within its clear white border.  So I wait for the wave To build, for the wide wake to recede, But these others walk on water, ride the waves, Page 69 Set their voices down like helicopters, Insinuate their bodies where there's no room, Leaving me suspecting Woolf, indeed, was right: One ought to sink to the bottom of the sea, Probably, and live alone with ones words.
