Saturday Night Poetry

You have your axes

 

What, precisely, is your procedure?
from [The challenge: to start] by Anna Moschovakis

 

They and We Will Get into Trouble for This opens with the line, “I don’t know a thing about paradise,” an opening gesture that tempers faux curiosity as much as it disavows the setting of paradise. It is also an utterance that conveniently taps into the three essential tiers of trouble—trouble and paradise themselves in a dance of agnostic and moral argument.

And dance it does. — NATALIE EILBERT, Fanzine
