Poetry. These poem cycles explore relationships both human and linguistic. Responsive (and responses) to the multiple connections between words, the poems create a narrative where intimacy and sensuality are revealed in the spaces between: "Logic a device that keeps wonder at bay. / The bay where they docked and will dock again." The repetitions-with-difference of RE- suggest that the seemingly contradictory notions of stability and change are reciprocal.
