Why these? Why quick? Why not.
Why knot, the first loop, the first tug of lace (but never tightening, never loose, never noose)? If you haven't read/thought the contemporary poetry that rankles the consciousness of academia, K-12 to graduate (would you please go away visual poetry, please disappear language poetry, please not discomfit our familiar?), these are a space to start, a place to blanch before you find the color in what you didn't know before.
