Review of Running for the Ship by Bruce Boston
Running for the Ship by Bruce Boston appeared in issue #21 (December 1, 2012) of the quarterly ezine NewMyths.com. For me, the poem evokes images of electrons and other sub-atomic particles, personified, and trying to break into the third dimension from their home in the fourth. Those few that are successful board a metaphorical ship; those that are not "keep running to become one with the rest of the world."
