A Reading Spicer and 18 Sonnets
“A warning is soothing/ a part of the landscape of sound/ in the inner ear/ this book nests in yr pocket hand/ vests interest in the larger structure/ the complex merger/ global markets.” So begins this new section of “A Reading,” the legendary long poem by Beverly Dahlen.
