A few passages from The Needle’s Eye by Fanny HoweThe almond tree with its white blossoms teaches him that fruition is a sign of completion the moment of failure to which everything aspires The trees have fulfilled their cycle turn white click off and die The binder for liuid bole is animal skin glue Almost honey Without glue binder bole won’t stick to the icon board And then there is the gold leaf or flake like a dry fleck of pollen to gild the wood Everything is stuck together when the gold has comeThe flowers buzz when the vibration of the bees stimulates their pistons and their molecules swell and their petals hum like cellos Rocks are alive too the firstborn of the natural world somber without will There is no freedom from this universe we were born into because it is our vague source of sensation our soul the container of our guiltSkins liuefy in heat And when a bald baby swallow dies on your palm you feel warmth pouring over your skin a kind of burning fountain that scalds you like pepper spray Do you think this is a sign of the spirit ripping its energy into you to carry to the other side I do There are no actual objects over there no materials but unformed steaming clouds colors that harmonize musically no gravity exists but elasticity composed of invisible mesh imagesWho will meet me on the other side I ask you to prove the error of what I say Will it be someone who never loved meDid you know that Puritans believed a baby was only conceived during an orgasm The Puritans had to spend a lot of time on making this happen on sex because without children there would be no settlement no cityStill hope was like a throng of singers that circled the world both here and there having died and echoed over and over What is a song but a call from the other side

The Needles EyeA meditation on time violence and chance by one of America's most dazzling poets O The Oprah MagazineFanny Howe's The Needle's Eye Passing through Youth is a seuence of essays short tales and lyrics that are intertwined by an inner visual logic The book contains filmic images that subvert the usual narrative chronology; it is focused on the theme of youth doomed or saved A fourteenth century folktal. Fanny Howe is a poet and The Needle's Eye Passing through Youth is a poet's prose There are many essays devoted to St Francis of Assisi and one of my favorite uotes that Howe uses of him is What we are looking for is what is looking a uote that captures the tone of this entire slim volume I have to say that I never got over my shock that there is a world and it is living Howe's book is the embodiment of this uote a world in which even the rocks are alive and there is joy and much suffering The convents full of girls fleeing the brutality of the world and an old priest dying in rage But this book is not religious Or at least I did not read it as such but full of metaphors and a faith that goes beyond religionsThe book opens with a uote from Yeats All the stream that's roaring bycame out of a needle's eye And Howe's book is full of the stream of life roaring by Her meditation on life speaks of youth but of age as well
