Theodore Enslin, To an Unknown Shore
92p. ISBN 978-1-907489-09-9
Some things newfound already known. Yet can we know the same thing twice or, since the singing’s always new, sing the same song again? After all, there are things which must be said / not always in the words. Or why we need to hear these poems & why these poems need to be heard, to be sounded out of silence. How else know other eyes that open other ways to see? Such seeing sung in poems whose music knows the rock will smile / beyond the sight / of those who claim it. No one can so claim to own song for themselves – for it is everyone's. As ever with Ted, it leaves me breathless.
