JERRY #3 accidentally discovered its theme: approach. Working beyond the first idea. Construction specs for how the building will crumble once razed.
The six poets and three fiction writers featured here employ various methods toward their objectives, but they converge by encircling, ensnaring, and enabling. Whether the constraint is the periodic table, a site-specific poem, a Fibonacci sequence, Shakespeare, Ginsburg or the mundane toil of a walking other people’s chattel (dogs), the endgame is one of sequence and pattern, inversion and reversion, exhaustion and renewal, approached and approaching and lacking the desire to end.
