You Will Not Know In Advance What You’ll Feel by Antonia Pont



This threshold, the edge of things’—now, this single instant, unfolding through itself time, syntax, memory, want. You Will Not Know In Advance What You’ll Feel has this radically spare structure of thought, within which, against which, Pont is characterful, quick, sensuous, ecstatic. Like Woolf’s novel The Waves, this work creates the silence out of which it speaks. It washes the words in it. Reading these poems, you meet time—face to blind face.
