Of Hindrance
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

No faces yet for the dead—no names, places, or certainties.

The little dog in the soul sitscocking his head at the newscasters.

No faces yet for the wounded.Little dog goes mad, howling now

for the million languages to answer:which has a word for snow-


An overwhelming majority ofheadwounds. Glass bowl

of naval oranges—trees waltzingoutside the hospital window.

There is a narrow stretch wherethe current slows over gravel and shale.

It is a popular place to cross. [End Page 37]
