Poetry. THE BOUNTY: FOUR ADDRESSES begins with the assumption that each human has a price on their head—the same price. Rushes and crystallizations of language probe our potential to do harm, or to lose our own minds, or respond to, refuse, erode or affirm the reality of another person. In four sections that move from chance encounters through love and fear to deliberate reflection, this book asks what states or what actions, our own or someone else's, can make any one of us less real than any other.
