[Issue #5, Winter 2000-2001]
Long Shot Odyssey
[In this work, the poet returns to Paris, the center of his memories. He
confronts the building where his lover, once a lusty youth, is now a married
man with children. He tries to put this man into some sort of framework.
But his lover, a cameraman, has always controlled the "frame."
The lover now takes command of the shots. Flashbacks take us into the memory
bank of both men in a variety of risky settings. In the end, the poet finds
a fixed position from which to view this experience. -- W.B.]
