anne boyer

Anne Boyer is a poet who lives in Kansas.

Anne Boyers’s “My Life” has a very particular structure, based on Lyn Hejinian’s “my life (s),” which means it must have 3 paragraphs of 40, 43, and 71 sentences (Anne Boyer’s age, Mary J. Blige’s, and Lyn Hejinian’s). The ideal publication shape would be for the first seven lines of each of the three paragraphs indented.

alberto savinio

Guillaume Apollinaire said of Savinio’s piano playing: I was surprised and beguiled; Savinio mistreated his instrument so much that after each piece the keyboard had to be cleared of chips and splinters. I foresee that within two years he will have gutted every piano in Paris. Savinio will then go on to destroy every piano in the universe, which may be a true liberation.
