Notebook 20, Pages 69-73: Poetry by Hank Lazer

« 1 2 3 4 5 6View All»


Hank Lazer’s seventeenth book of poetry N18 (complete), a handwritten book, is available from Singing Horse Press: The four poems/pages in EOAGH , from N20, were written in Honolulu during a family gathering. The quotations are from Levinas’ Of God Who Comes to Mind; the immediate occasion for these meditations on loss and forgetting was my interaction with my uncle, a retired neurosurgeon and longtime astute reader of my poetry. Witnessing his ongoing cognitive losses (from an earlier stroke), I am seeking ways to understand this process as an ongoing schooling of one’s soul. N18P69 (“who comes to mind…”) has been performed with soprano saxophonist Andrew Raffo Dewar.
