"Karen Weiser writes for the courage of every breathing thing" — CAConrad

Karen Weiser wrote this poem cycle in conversation with poet Etel Adnan's book There In the Light and the Darkness of the Self and of the Other. Teasing out the edges of their boxy forms, the poems engage the language of boundaries and location.
