"Did you see someone cold-cock a blind nun? / Well, I did. Two helpful idiots / Steered her across the tarmac to her plane / And led her smack into the wing. / She deplaned with two black eyes & a crooked wimple, / Bruised proof that the distinction is not simple / Between ineptitude and evil."

A collection of "urban-chic" poems. In Rondeau at the Train Stop, which is set in Boston, she writes: "It bothers me: the genital smell of the bay / drifting toward me on the T stop, the train / circling the city like a dingy, year-round / Christmas display. The Puritans were right, / sin's / everywhere in Massachusetts."

Quipu by Arthur Sze( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sze's poems, long admired for fusing science, history, philosophy, and anthropology, are full of imaginative rigor and urgency; they make us envision the marvels and terrors of our contemporary world. His lines and rhythms are taut, sensuous, and mesmerizing; nouns become verbs - "where is a passion that orchids the body?"--And what appears solid and stable may actually be fluid, volatile. Arthur Sze harnesses the precarious, charged particulars of our lives and, through his luminous language, makes enduring and breathtaking poetry."--Jacket
