Poetry. Written in the long shadow of 9/11, THIS WINDOW MAKES ME FEEL replaces the individual poet's response to catastrophe with a collective, multi-vocal chorus of everyday articulations. Never before published in its entirety, THIS WINDOW MAKES ME FEEL is one of the earliest examples of a long poem solely composed with repurposed web language.
