Elaine Equi

It’s an imperative to remind myself of the brilliance of the poetry of Elaine Equi, an early poetic love. Oh, those knowing eyes and smile, and clear states of consciousness! Below are two poems: “Approaching Orgasm” and “A Bouquet of Objects,” both from Surface Tension (Coffeehouse Press, 1989).

These poems I remember from early influences, which still send me, and I’m moved to delve further into her later writings. The future is lucid!
