Summary

This lovely book of poems, written in Woodstock, NY, carries inspiration from various places. The book, prefaced by '12 Poems That Were Never Written, ' is divided into three sections, 'Natural Megaron, ' 'Preposition Poems' and 'Lung Poems, ' corresponding to three distinctive methods Radfar used to write her way into time and space: settling down with her journal on a hilly overlook after a 30 minute walk; removing prepositions while still managing to talk about her relation to space; writing at a fixed time in the middle of the night. In going as far as she can in each of these disparate directions, she summons, with a surprising degree of certitude, a sense of how this specific place once affected her writing and her life. One of the poems included is: "Position, I have sought your proper place have landed snake-like your tumescent rock pile grassy wild oracular Position, I can't speak all the places you are my tendency my perpetual circumstance I will come, give meentrance"
