Poetry. "Many, many lives converge in THEY SAY THIS IS HOW DEATH CAME INTO THE WORLD like the illusion of parallel lines converging on the horizon. What seems quiet layers ice on a roiling maelstrom. We skid from poem to poem and when we break through we have a new home and a new idea for uttering familiar words"—Gian Lombardo.
