I noticed that my former teacher and mentor from UMass Amherst, Dara Wier, had a poem on Poetry Daily today.

Read “Relentless Usurpation of Temporal Linearity” here.

Dara’s work continues to push into the theoretical, it seems to me, but I found this image beautifully grounded:

And yes, watching ice skaters, the kind called figure skaters,
the ones who aren’t doing anything other than tracking again &

again some figure of infinity marked out on ice for them…

Enjoy.
