Deal with attracts us into obvious and invisible architectures, into acts of intimate and public handle. those poems are targeted, polyvocal, and sharply aware of acts of illustration; they take in my opinion their politics and within the procedure demonstrate whatever in regards to the means civic buildings inhabit the mind's eye. toxic crops, witches, anthems, bees?beneath their floor, we glimpse the fragility of our founding, republican aspirations and witness a disintegrating panorama artfully remodeled. If a poem can function one of those astrolabe, measuring distances either cosmic and rapid, temporal and actual, it does so through innovative, nonlinear ability. right here, earlier and current interact in acts of mutual interrogation and critique, and inside of this dynamic Willis's poetry is instantly complexly authoritative and looking: "so starts off our legislation."

Example text

His terrace. He is her first Jewish Intellectual, a young scholar on a Fulbright photographing Venetian churches. Today, on the sly, he photographs her. It is not important. Only the sun is important, the bikini stencil it burns around her budding breasts, the terrace. There are fresh cherries too, and ice tea: so American she feels, so reassuringly American and adult, drinking ice tea, speaking English on the rooftop, at ease in a bikini, spitting pits into a green Murano dish. She is comfortable with men.

29 Rooftop: Aerial View She is twelve, an expat brat in a bikini, sunbathing on a rooftop terrace. His terrace. He is her first Jewish Intellectual, a young scholar on a Fulbright photographing Venetian churches. Today, on the sly, he photographs her. It is not important. Only the sun is important, the bikini stencil it burns around her budding breasts, the terrace. There are fresh cherries too, and ice tea: so American she feels, so reassuringly American and adult, drinking ice tea, speaking English on the rooftop, at ease in a bikini, spitting pits into a green Murano dish.

No Jake in sight to ride with her in the ambulance boat. No Jake to loosen the knot at her neck. 31 At home, no explanation. Nothing about headaches, nothing about the rope or the pills, nothing except no more rooftop young lady (a punishment? ) and overheard, the incomprehensible word: breakdown. For the girl not only the season is broken, but her summer flirtation, the rooftop bond that is not a bond. The Americans disperse, most to different continents—leaving Venice, then later returning (together, apart) year after year returning and returning— changed and unchanged to the same city which never changes.
