Poetry. Marc Rahe's concern with the body—in motion, trauma, sickness, health, intoxication, joy, wonder, and waiting—fascinates and compels one to heartbreak, desire, and resignation. These poems are silly and strange, adapting, fiery, and fiercely observant—as well as bent on the notion that one might attend to even the smallest of extraordinary detail.
