Poetry. Gosslee's careful eye and skill for juxtaposition have yielded poems that surprise with revelations about the texture of experience. ANALOG brims with a keen awareness of human nature, even urbane gesture, as a product of the natural world.From "My Body is a System of Enlightenment" from ANALOG:I lope down the mountainside,but my wings won't open.Grey stone buildings frecklethe slope.My feet are covered in scar tissue,the toes are fused, where have I run?Angels put their hands on my shouldersand hold me in place.The hatchet laid against the saplingfuses into the trunk over time.
