Poetry. "In these seeming stage directions for the 'play of the moment' the characters face each other in multiple scenes of house, water, land and weather. The whole story rumbles through like a relentless flow of time out of time. If the story tells you it happened, it happened. It won't let you down, you can rely on that"—Joanne Kyger.
