Wendy Collin Sorin and Derek White s new book of visual poetry works, as we say, on many levels.0 I ve read the book a few times so far, and I m still trying to extract all the meaning out of this dense, yet stunningly beautiful,1 visual text, which carries with some grace the ungainly title of P.S. At Least We Died Trying to Make You in the Backseat of a Taxidermist. The text begins by making multiple references to the soft center (or off-center) of biological items: xylem, pith, phloem, and the roots of teeth. These references encourage us to consider the Fibonacci sequence,1 that magical sequence found frequently enough in the constructions of nature. In case we missed the opening hint, the second page of the book presents the sequence itself, from 1 through 610, leading directly to the center of the opening palm xylem. The rest of the review is here: http://dbqp.blogspot.com/2005/02/stratigraphy-and-significance-in.html --Geof Huth, dbqp
