This Connection of Everyone with Lungs : Poems (New California Poetry)
Juliana SpahrISBN: 0520242955; 9780520242951;
Book DescriptionPart planetary love poem, part 24/7 news flash, the hypnotic poems of This Connection of Everyone with Lungs wrap with equal, angular grace around lovers and battleships. These poems hear the tracer fire in a bird's song and capture cell division and troop deployments in the same expansive thought. They move through concentric levels of association and embrace --from the space between the hands to the mesosphere and back again--touching everything in between. The book's focus shifts between local and global, public and private, individual and social. Everything gets in: through all five senses, through windows, between your sheets, under your skin.
