Something (even human voices) in the foreground, a lake
Author: Kathleen Fraser
Publisher: Kelsey St. Press (1984)
From the author: Something (even human voices) in the foreground, a lake uses sentences exclusively, except for the single middle poem dividing the book. The first section is a series of mostly discrete paragraphs, assembled with declarative sentences and random fragments. Much of this was written among the company of Italians, at a lake site, when I could barely speak Italian. It is notation from the purely witnessing position. Is this still "singing"?
