Amusing clip-art configurations provide graphic accompaniment to poems by a broad spectrum of contributors. Rochelle Owens' section from Luca captures the sinuous, braided structures of the larger work. Elizabeth Robinson's "Train Ride" continues her probe into the anatomy of tropes, of language's structures. Elizabeth Sargent's "911--Saturday Afternoon 1:13 p.m." keys off an actual event--the 1993 mass murder of five teen-aged black women in Oklahoma City. The highly-charged poem is written in the persona of a mother of one of them.--Susan Smith Nash
