Still in Chaos

Alice NotleyThe Body Is in the Soul (2’30”). Track seven of the CD that shipped with the double-issue of Jacques Darras‘s magazine In’Hui devoted to Poésie Américaine 1950-2000, which grew out of a conference Darras organized at the Université de Picardie in December of 1999. I first read the poem in April of 1998, when it appeared in the second issue of Gare du Nord, the stapled zine that Notley edited with her husband the poet Douglas Oliver, and can still remember the tense jangly set Notley delivered at the conference. The poem is now included in Reason and Other Women.
