The second anthology of poetry and prose from NYWC’s workshop at the Creative Center: Arts in Healthcare. This writing spans human experience from dealing with trauma to enjoying the small pleasure of everyday life. Spring 2012. Read an excerpt.
Control mongers exasperate me.
Number ONE: How arrogant!
Number TWO: How shortsighted!
Number THREE: How misguided, and—
Number FOUR: How sad, because it is the order beyond anything
we could ever imagine which yields the greatest payoff.
How absolutely foolish to trade the fireworks’ fish below the reef
for the everyday tuna which always makes a sandwich,
but never an epiphany.
