Abstract

SOLAR MACHINERY / Carol Muske Full moon. Orange, over a TV antenna. Early night, light plane traveling up fast ahead of its sound. White steeple of noise. No cars and my neighbor's solar machinery working hard at hoarding the light. All night: maybe the moon will renegotiate its position relative to us. For centuries, we asked only beauty of it, then a landing place a spot where rockets could come, weightless, down. What I'd like is a fresh start in the dark room where I hold my pocket mirror up and it fills with moonlight. There's my mouth in the dark glass-- like a television ad, eerie bow of motion and teeth. Erotic always, seeing a woman's lips moving close-up, you know, pretty-- but the feel of an obscene word repeated, repeated, with passion and precision and for you, that's right, you specifically. The Missouri Review · 19 IMMUNITY / Carol Muske Issa's little daughter, Sato-jo, on all fours in this haiku, laughs! She's nearly my daughter's age when he makes her immortal. Her face contains his, like a reflection of sun that leaps from wave to wave-- if real age is in the expression, then she's sure
