If a poem can function a type of astrolabe, measuring distances either cosmic and speedy, temporal and actual, it does so by means of inventive, nonlinear capability. right here, prior and current have interaction in acts of mutual interrogation and critique, and inside of this dynamic Willis’s poetry is instantaneously complexly authoritative and looking: “so starts our legislation.”
