|PEN CHANTS: OR NTH OR 12 SPIRIT-LIKE IMPERMANENCES
by Lissa Wolsak
"Pen Chants are poems as many-bodied sensual thought, not quite swooning beneath real anger and potential grace. All that is misrecognized in silence leafs out in a revolute honesty to dangerously name out "tacit no-home". I say dangerously because Wolsak insiteantly draws out the acute, familial beauty shared by terror and necessity. In Pen Chants, the political weeps."
