Poetry. Stuart Dischell's new chapbook sings of adventuresome travel and camaraderie. On the waterfront, we find drunken captains, dissolute merchants and, improbably, a momentary restful pause. In the countryside and in the city, Dischell focuses not on any landscape or sight, but on the way one's friendships frame experience, expanding it beyond known dimensions.
