Abstract: These poems often aim toward resonance rather than reference - issuing not necessarily from the representation of any event, but the event that an (often) rhetorical voice must create for itself in order for the poem to "happen," and which must somehow become anthemic to a number of selves. The voices of these poems confront the possibility of meaninglessness, and do so in various stages of commitment, embodiment, and potency - measured, too, by laws, geographical boundaries, and other demarcations external to them.
