Description

Poets attribute an array of roles and capacities to the involuntary muscle. The heart becomes a repository of erotic and familial love and a sanctuary for memory. The poets explore the flux of the heart's responses and instigations: the heart's tender overtures, its joyous pulse, its mating call for the other, its changeable temperament, its final tick in freeze-frame. Among the poets featured: Kenneth Sherman, Lorna Crozier, Marilyn Bowering, Roo Borson, Patrick Lane, Charles Bukowski, Eugénio de Andrade, John Barton, Robyn Sarah, and Mary di Michele.
