Poetry Drawing the ANIMATE INANIMATE AIM together they settle into difference With subtle contagion of body as structured text titled ligatures in the midst thick with emotional materiel Brenda Iijima's work rhymes off or near sight as sound Nature for culture culture as nature 'we can play school under a tree' or at war Breaking and building in twitchy compression the way Marie Menken's hand held camera swings framed and fabulous this exuberant tragic book of drawings and poems will hook you Norma Cole A kind of necessity is created here for saying rejuvenating myths turning anger into jouissance making thoughts a river of lightBeware we won't be chagrined any such subversion is the changing of the world Etel Adnan
