Carol Berge's "Animal Visions"

This tricky prose poem still rocks and rolls. At once current, dated, abnormal, humorous, horrid, scary, icky, tried, true... God's perspective while eating souls, being marginally comparable to what we humans choose for our supper, was Carol's overt intent. But she also enjoyed messing with peoples' heads (until "karma" took her for a loop); how devastating, that her lover at the time (the photographer Alan Dye) disappeared shortly after this poem was published; she quit dating after that, and began investing in antiques rather than romance. Yet she refined and redefined her master prose projects for another two decades alongside a tiny round-the-clock staff and several devoted friends who entered and exited her perpetually unlocked door with an odd blend of respect, disdain, curiosity, and love.
