|"Dwell in Possibility," 2014, by Yolanda Sanchez|
Every painting a tribute to certainty
or to a decision made
Yes that’s how it is
That branch there Its fingers lolling in the water
No animals visible
All of them in their tree trunks and warrens
the internal organs of the land
and a mossy body to shimmer above them
selflessly as a distraction

|"Garden in the Tree," Ji Dachun|
The memory of every thing I ever handled
sinks into skin to find bone
The body ingests what it has touched
and cells become sanctuary
for what is grazed and beloved

Some links to share!
-This article on Vox by Phil Edwards about the human voice behind Siri.
-#Charlestonsyllabus, a wonderful list of resources on the history of racial violence in America and race relations in general.
-A new Part and Parcel on Huffington Post featuring the amazing Nin Andrews. Her new book, Why God Is a Woman, blew my mind. You can read a few poems from the book in the post, along with our brief conversation about gender, identity, and danger. (And another fun tidbit--the cover artist for her book is Aron Wiesenfeld, whose image also appears on my book!)
