Review of "Reduction" by Page Starzinger

Editor's Note:  My apologies for the tardiness of this post.

"Reduction" by Page Starzinger was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 13, 2013.  The poet reveals in her notes that her poem is inspired by the Piraha of the Amazon--a people whose language consists only of descriptions of the present.  For the Piraha, out of sight literally means out of mind.  The poet muses on what kind of life experience might result and ends with a question of religious faith.
