dark acre – poems – Canese Jarboe

dark acre
poems, Canese Jarboe
Willow Springs Books, 2018


He made a face for me: cow pelvis fixed
to the inside of a welding helmet.

I have been startled by a foregone thing, by this dark acre, by this communique decoded by the poet, Canese Jarboe, who here gathers an imagery that doesn’t die on the page but goes forth to envision a lonesome and peopled secrecy that attempts, with odd accuracies and interior wishes, to overcome landmark via recognizable deformities. Thrice read, this work lives where written. Pokes the eye in the back of the head. Has nostalgia for the unlocatable.
