Heller Levinson & Linda Lynch Barque


Bosom sentry       cruise titillate
            quartered itinerant

in the whirl-shimmer throttle-dexterous irradiant embark this —>
this jangle converge prowing impeccable
      scrim-shorn pierce improbable

                  in the

                  dubious consult
cleat conjunction


Heller Levinson’s most recent books are Lurk and Seep (Black Widow Press), with the upcoming Dialogics (Anvil Tongue Press), Lure, and jus' sayn' (Black Widow Press) scheduled for a spring 2022 release.
Linda Lynch lives and works in New Mexico. She is a native of far west Texas from a ranching family long established in the solitude of the high Chihuahuan desert, a landscape that has informed her work over decades. After earning a BFA in drawing and printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute she lived and worked in New York City, Mexico, and Africa. While based in New Mexico Lynch travels frequently, pursuing issues of landscape, identity, and abstraction long established in her works on paper.
The poem and image appearing here will also be forthcoming in Lure (Black Widow Press, Spring, 2022).
