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

  • Glossolalia of Wind
  • Nicholas Samaras (bio)

Yes, it spoke. Yes,it had a color to it.The wind was streaked with salt and language.

And gold light welled, the stone meadowsbrimmed with it.The hard tufts of green murmured

their testimonies, their martyrdom.I spoke the lifespan of air.I said after all had been said.

You come to every cave.You put your hand on the skin of meaning,the lifeline and the witness.

You take this. [End Page 95]
