Poetry. "You emplane for Ireland, back./ I drive six hours through morning/ Vermont fog into BQE stop and/ go to Brooklyn home of Marni/ and Arden and quickly go/ forth to the MET where/ Chardin's wild strawberries --/ tiny, the devil to pick, / good to look at good/ to eat good to paint/ good to look at when painted - moist pyramid close to / collapse into jeweled mush." BACK AND FORTH is new work from William Corbett, well-known poet, Boston institution and editor of Pressed Wafer. His ALL PROSE, selected essays and reviews, is due out from Zoland this fall.
