Susan Smith Nash
The Airport is My Etude
32 pages, paper
ISBN 0-945926-42-1

Where there's a narrative there's a story, but with this spare sequential narrative, the "negative space" where language cannot infiltrate becomes the mysterious emotional center. The difficulty & necessity of human connection builds through distances, represented visually (text placement) & through the poem's content. "my new lace lace teddy / scratched / against my breasts."

Susan Smith Nash is currently the editor of texture press. Her Channel Surfing the Apocalypse, & To The Uzbekistani Soldier Who Would Not Save My Life were published by AVEC.
