The diverging scales of public and private. Standing back and then homing in, architect and former graffiti artist Mensur Demir builds a space for poems by David Wojahn, Peter Balakian, Sophie Klahr, Natalie Shapero, and many others. Ruminations on shoplifting, Spoleto, and the cultural nuances of eating (by Donald Quist, Chad Davidson, and Jung Hae Chae) play against fraught interiors in the fiction of Julianna Baggott, Kent Nelson, and Perri Klass, to name just some.
