Juliana Spahr:

Buffalo NY 14222

16 pp., 2.00

One recognizes in this risk taking ruminating collage poem of dividing energies divided "half-lives that exceed years."

Nuclear: of a nucleus. "we are born to be awake not be asleep."

Nucleus: the central part or thing about which others are collected. "the littlest world of woman now contains atom."

This is a poem self-consciously on the edge of its annihilation. "as the energy is liberated/one must learn to see." --Tom Beckett
