collections include *Derivative of the Moving Image* (UNM Press 2007),
A Chapbook *Designed by Andrea Baker (Saint Elizabeth Street/Youth-in-Asia
Press 2010) and *(a) lullaby without any music* (Chax 2011).

*margareta waterman* dabbles in all the arts, and mixes them up when she
can; her best love, always, is words, and the multiple ways they dance.
from this naturally followed creating and producing live theatre, books,
recordings, archives and so on, for herself and colleagues.  now
semi-retired in the oregon woods, she maintains a small presence in portland
and seattle.
**Maryrose Larkin* is the author of several books, the most recent of which
is *Marrowing* (Airfoil, 2011). She is one of the organizers of Spare Room,
a Portland-based writing collective, and is co-editor, with Sarah Mangold,
of FLASH+CARD, a chapbook and ephemera poetry press.

*From a retranslation of The Chronicles of the Guayaki Indians*

and if this parasitic existence

should go on for too long of a time

he will be left at the foot of a tree

before a fire

there he must wait patiently

for death

the waiting may or may not be long

but an old man is not a strong man

and the process will move quickly

he has turned nature upside down

in his attempt to draw the moon

closer to the sea

he must suffer for his wanderings

it is this suffering that he has created

he is forced to pay for this reversal

 *This section is missing citations*
an axe fell from the sky

decoding   dreamer
assigning cures
from the day’s residue

schools of thought
*discuss  *the process of  meaning

ascribe the dream
to part of the human
and part of the animal

*Maryrose Larkin*
*i am not a poet because i write poems*
*i am a poet because*
*is grist for the mill*
*that grinds me into illumination*
*until only words are left*
*whether i like it or not*
