|About the Book|
Poetry. Norman Fischers long poem takes as its place CHARLOTTES WAY, a house on the California coast, but mostly the poem takes things in. Fischer, a Zen priest, meditates on talk, the passing of time, the brain, catness, bills to be paid, poems, search parties, birds and myriad other subjects as they flicker in and out of thought. Terri Wadas design emphasizes the fluidity of Fischers thinking- rather than turning from one page to the next, the chapbook opens out, filling both space and time.
