Poetry. In this winner of the 2006 Green Rose Prize "You can fairly hear the pinging of the world and all its parts-noises of earth's objects rubbing against each other and the spheres. In this ebullient music find the translation of colors, shapes, space, speech, integrity, destruction. It's as if the world's most believable cape were thrown back and below we found not a sham of seasons but all the body's most dynamic possibilities"--Eleni Sikelianos.
