Poetry. Sharply drawn and lyrical, PERSPECTIVE WOULD HAVE US is the first full-length collection from poet Erica Carpenter. Carpenter is a Rhode Island native and received an MFA in Literary Arts from Brown University in 1998. She is the author of a chapbook, Summoned to the Fences, and has published in a number of literary journals, including NO: A JOURNAL OF THE ARTS, LINGO and 26. Thoughts to blood must always/in possible distinction talk.//Subject to instance, substance/weight, possibly-force, always;//and where are said breath, flight, /always the earthbound element/claims love//In other words (pictorial)/the difference in two hands/as pressed in prayer//and two hands flared, inverse, //the smallest digits locking wing.
