Notes

  • Epigraph: ... but from a street I was summoned, / from the branches of others, / among violent fires / or returning alone, / there I was without a face / and it touched me. (Pablo Neruda) ...

    the art of losing's not too hard to master / though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster! (Elizabeth Bishop)
