The Magic Rectangle

prose poetry by
Sandra S. McRae

ISBN 978-1-61019-238-5
Paperback List Price: $14 US
58 pages

Launch: 10 December 2017

With seeming innocence, Sandra S. McRae asks us to “watch how plastic bags and straw wrappers can get caught in the eddy of a breeze,” but then demands “Justify your life” — allowing responses to be double-spaced “when appropriate.” In her hands, “where the hell are the rubber bands?” becomes an existential question. After reading McRae’s poems, we too hear rocks say “It goes faster than you / think. We should know,” and we know we are not alone. A magical read.
