'Afloat in a glass-bottom boat, I see into the sea--'
So simple, shockingly light and almost normal, almost just any old sentence, but it isn't. From "The Unfollowing" a poem by Lyn Hejinian on this blog of blogs, written by Karen Carlson.
'In a small town, everything is elsewhere'
Ok, now I will add from the top. This one is from "Code" by Marvin Bell, see also Dead Man Poems, About the Dead Man and Government. I think there are too many links already.
'all acts of reading start from a rectangle'
I will start my list of phrases with that one from Sarah Rose Murphy's blog.
'How do you understand your womanhood?' also from Sarah Rose Murphy
