Pattie McCarthy Reviews Maryan Nagy Captan's "Copy/Body"

Maryan Captan's copy/body creates for me a reading space that feels & thinks like the moments just upon waking — when the mind is still colored around the edges with the fantastic & strange details of dreaming — & the day, with its work-hours & plans & errands & practicality, has not yet intruded. There is an acuity of thought in those waking moments that these poems embody with depth & angles & 'bending inexplicable' articulations. Captan writes : 'carefully / the tender / begins / to pull.' The tender & the care & the pull all remain with me in equal measure.
