Many of the poems carry a shamanistic, elemental quality, as if real matter were articulating out of word-fragments. Božičević writes, “At the end of poetry the…

Stay Tuned…

I can’t watch this video, but it’s me about twenty pounds lighter since last year, though I was pretty thin to begin with.  It seems my doc is coming close to a different diagnosis than last year’s, so stay tuned for an interesting update, particularly since the diagnosis might apply to your own G.I. /…

flying by

Bozicevic confronts travel and memory and the conventions of sleep (dreams), and while she certainly practices a kind of lucid dreaming, she in no way limits her subjects—a testament to Bozicevic’s organic and pristine construction of not only each poem, but the collection as a whole.
