Poems by Peter Gizzi annotated by Vahni Capildeo

Our tenth issue (2017) was themed around marginalia, so we asked some of our contributors to annotate each other’s work. What resulted was difficult to print, but happily we can share with you here ‘Sentences in a synapse field’ and ‘How to read’ by Peter Gizzi, with annotations by Vahni Capildeo.
