Poetry. WALKING TOOTH & CLOUD, the new collection of prose poems from California poet Albert Flynn DeSilver, reaches "into your skull and reshape[s] and reshape[s] your brain like wax after lighting its wick"-Ian Ayres. "The pronoun I in its word-tissue forest...'a book of elastic steel, an opposable piano.' Meet tea leaf man, iced-over man, and others, as the inside-outside window collapses. 'I am wind in the paper.' Beautiful. 'I alone as mirror to the world'''--Alice Notley.
