Cover to Cover with Jack Foley

Jack’s guest is Burmese-American Bay Area poet Maw Shein Win. Maw’s poetry has appeared in many journals; she was co-founder of “Comet,” a literary, arts and culture magazine and is currently a co-publisher for “Stretcher,” an online arts journal. She has completed residencies at Can Serrat International Art Center in Spain and, locally, at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Her latest book, “Ruins of a glittering palace,” is a collaboration with Los Angeles-based artist Mark Dutcher. Dutcher and Win “explore the idea of loss, the will to live, and how memory fades. They are interested in how events and people are sometimes reduced to just beauty, melancholy, and atmosphere...They have been best friends for over 30 years.”


there there

now here

where a solitary pair


swim in separate circles

the water falls into

circular space


cast away

this year & another year

& another year before


on an island, the sand

& the land

where the pair


made a pact

to swim in separate

tides, trunks,


truncation, a vacation,

now here, not here
