Description: As a container, the attic is a refuge for secret objects and a repository for ordinary objects. As anatomy, the attic is a space just above the ear drum, responsible for transmitting external sound to the fluid labyrinth of the ear. These poems are experiments in the shape and sound of memories, inspired by Gertrude Stein’s “portraits,” particularly those written during World War II.
