Gotham Underground 3 February We accepted they were waving neighbors like the old Japanese fellow down the street, nice as can be, whom we could only ever wave to because no one could understand him. Finally, the thing was undeniably a blanket. What else could it have been? We thought she might be getting a little bigger, a little rounder about the middle, but sitting down, it was hard to tell.

And then they were gone for many days. We poked their mail all the way through the slot until it fell with a heavy thud on the stack of mail on the other side. We looked for packages so we could bring them in to our own homes and keep them safe. Then a light came on behind the curtains. And the next day, the woman was back on the porch, very pale. The blanket on her lap. She pulled the yarn out line by line, the crinked coils gathering at her feet.

That night she went inside and left the pile there, where it stayed for many weeks until the two moving vans arrived and movers put the boxes with her name in one truck and his name in the other. This is a good neighborhood. It was never going to take long. A lesbian couple moved in. Returned our plates with similar gestures of neighborly goodwill. They knew how this works. They swept the pile of yarn into a black bag and set it in the bin, already at the curb by Sunday evening. Candles sputter on the cloth Zelda stitched by hand, blue and white thread soft, sun-faded, rituals constant across continents.

Despite slick skin the color of Odessa sunsets, apples taste sooty, crumble rather than crunch, salty on the shared plate. Snores chant from the bedroom, Rs stretch even in their sleep, the boys sound more American daily, collect baseball cards and marbles, hold hands with blonde girls at school. With the synagogue back home smoldering, salt tilled in the frozen fields, wonder if anyone still listens, or if words stick in the cracked ceiling.

Bake challah slowly, murmur the prayers said since childhood. Under Brushstrokes by Hedy Habra Press 53 , pages. On a walking tour of street art in London, a guide once told me that the artists intentionally let the paint drip from their images and letters. The technique of dripping paint—or liquidation—captures the mystique of outlaw art, of work done on the run, after dark, under the pressure of time. Although the title poem is lineated in interesting ways, the bulk of the collection is made up of prose poems that capture reactions to visual art, mostly paintings.

In choosing the prose poem form, the poet has put aside the tension between the sentence and the line, focusing our attention instead on the sentence itself. Although Habra writes about museum art rather than street art, her own sentences echo the aesthetic of liquidation as they drip down into, over, and around letters, words, and images.

This one sentence comprises the entirety of the poem whose liquid aesthetic is its core strength. The moment of intimacy and ecstasy gives way to despair. The keen insight of this poem, however, is the recognition of the fluidity of movement between emotional states. And the liquid sentence is key to this fluidity. The first lines of the poem prefigure the rest: Winter is not to be mistaken for death. The accumulation of waves of subordinate clauses may obfuscate the subject and predicate of the independent clause at the heart of a sentence.

It is one of the deep pleasures of reading poetry, however, to let ourselves be manipulated by this deliberate syntactic effusion; it defamiliarizes our ways of seeing, thinking, and feeling, opening us up to the tingly and the new. In reading this collection, one notices that many of the prose poems, in addition to the liquidity of their sentences, rely also on the power of persona. Habra wisely uses end stops in order to make the poem conversational, emphasizing the imperatives and injunctions characteristic of a parent addressing a child:.

Come, son, we shall circle the human ruins, hand in hand, rest under the coolness of their elongated shadow: See my son, only now can we move freely about the canvas. Occasionally, Habra undermines her own poetic power by describing too literally the details of the paintings she has chosen. I prefer her poems which deviate from and transform the origin works. But observation comes first.

When I first read a poem, I just take it in. I just let it wash over me. If something in it grabs me, then I take a closer look. What is the first line of the poem? What is the first word of the poem? How does the poem end? Where do the lines break? How is it capitalized? How is it punctuated? What is its structure? What is its shape? How is it organized? How is it arranged?

Is there any repetition? What patterns can be glimpsed? What is the movement in the poem? What in the poem is ordinary? What in the poem is unusual? What in the poem is outrageous? Does anything in the poem stick out? I pay special attention to what attracts my attention. I take seriously this sentence from Biographia Literaria: In a great poem or any work of art , everything 2 is intentional.

Thus, the careless, the sloppy, the slipshod, the thoughtless, the unattended, the unintended, the unrevised is never art. Information by itself is meaningless.

A catalogue of data is just an inventory until we see something distinctive in it, until we shape it into something useful, until we make what is useful significant, and then make it meaningful.

For many readers, this is just a poem about spring, dammit! Leave it alone, will ya? Leave this lovely poem about spring alone! I agree with her that that is the key question of the poem.

The focus in the poem is on the kids, their energy, their vitality, their animation, their youth. They transfer their wonder to the puddles. They transfer their lusciousness to the mud.

But on this particular day, what happened was in full view of the townspeople and more and more of them appeared as the word got out. But then the newcomers began following the gaze of the people standing in the street below. On the top of the water tower, on the balcony, four school girls — tiny figurines they appeared to be from below — were dancing. In formation, like ballet dancers. The mayor, passing the tower on his way to the bank, had rushed inside to tell him. Someone phoned the Volunteer Fire Brigade. The siren calling for the volunteers could be heard all over town and beyond.

He was going to climb them. Someone else suggested using a loud hailer instead. The nearby school had one for its sports days. Then he could shout to the girls. But what if the girls got startled and skipped a beat and fell, someone cried out. It was one of the teachers from the school.

The fire engine arrived next, siren on full. They got the girls down. That afternoon, the tower was locked. For good, it was said. The light blinds me. The dark blinds me. You come inside, and what you say makes the unlocked door remain an unlocked door. My dog is convinced that everything can be fixed by a lozenge, and he gobbles them up when allowed. So you can understand how the house remains unknown to me, its definitions as gray as the difference between me and not me.
