Errata

Rating: 4.0
Where it says snow
read teeth-marks of a virgin
Where it says knife read
you passed through my bones
like a police-whistle
Where it says table read horse
Where it says horse read my migrant's bundle
Apples are to remain apples
Each time a hat appears
think of Isaac Newton
reading the Old Testament

The use of the 'common' language to express full, and profound thoughts is done so well, so originally. A few lines stumble, but very few. This is craftsmanship in the best sense of the word
