    LOVE Anne Carson!

    🙂 hellov – Doesn’t it seem Anne Carson with “Linnaeus Town” offers not only a brand new poem, a critique of science with overly pre-determined human categories but also an allusion back to her 1995 poem (or that illusive hanging together of poems) called “Life of Towns.” Remember, it starts with a few (prose) paragraphs and specifically this line:

    “Towns are the illusion that things hang together somehow, my pear, your winter.”

    Just, brilliant!
