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

  • Carthusia
  • Andrew Seguin (bio)

No speech but the sound of themselvesat a walk across the bowed oak floor,the other inhabitants known by strideor because of no stride, thoughtto be at sleep, prayer or silence.No mentor but the winter, a mediumthat muffles hoof and wolf and shelvesthe pines with so much whitethe branches cannot bear another color.A cardinal alights as a gunshot.No need for the tongue but to taste or chant.Snow is the only syllableanyone need know, and the land notates it.The ear is within the instrument.
