Review of Rocket Fantastic [excerpt] by Gabrielle Calvocoressi

Rocket Fantastic [excerpt] by Gabrielle Calvocoressi was offered by's Poem-A-Day on April 10, 2013.  The poet reveals that she suffers from nystagmus, a condition where the eyes move rapidly in a certain direction, usually horizontal.  It can be a sign of a serious neurological condition.  However,  for her, it inspires a kind of poetry where things blend into other things--in the case of this excerpt, a beautiful male body blends with light.  I found the imagery in the poem moving.
