Elfreth's Alley Midsummer's Night Magic

An evening of midsummer heat and magic. Listening to Tessa Micaela, a Philly poet I've not heard before, I had to catch my breath at her hushed, powerfully evocative meditations of the Idea of the The City.

Earthspeak Magazine mentions a chapbook, CUSP, but I've not been able to find it.

Here's a link to the poem on Earthspeak:
What We Used to Call Silence

All around the house
        are the kinds of noises
             we are not used to;

birds at no real distance
        spread wings and extend
              to the winds. Limbs

of hemlocks are pronounced
        unhurriedly, are shadows
               in an exhaling sky.

... the rest HERE
