even the details have details = "a thing so small / the shapeliest mind / can't fix its density" Katherine Williams
(Elisa Gabbert and I once performed together in her apt. She read from a sequence of poems she posted to the blog Even the Details Have Details; I read the poems I wrote in the comments field of said blog…
—so, Elisa read,
“There’s an injured marsupial in front of my tire. / Would you be interested in a happy ending? // Technically, it’s still spring. / Would you be interested in a happy ending? // Stop honking. I’m trying to think. …”
and I read,
“Koala never caused no ruckus / not no how not at all + / Koala say yes t'bookish, so / step th'back up fish fragile. // This is SERIOUS. Koala courts /honk-trouble + girls aplenty. / Koala say "brings on brunettes /they red-headed brainy."
…and now we perform in public together once more in DIAGRAM 16.2).
"...only the boss, who / disappears into / the carbon field and rises / into the knots of language" Matt Sadler
"fig wood, little sun" Geoffrey Detrani
