RIP P.K. PAGE


Perhaps Victoria's greatest natural treasure is gone.  If you've never read her work, do.  If you ever had the chance to hear her read or to meet her after a reading, be glad.

This Heavy Craft

The wax has melted
but the dream of flight
persists.
I, Icarus, though grounded
in my flesh
have one bright section in me
where a bird
night after starry night
while I'm asleep
unfolds its phantom wings
and practices.
