Eight 2 Two
by Sasha Newborn
Eight 2 Two is a book of 100 short poems (two of them translations from Pablo Neruda) by a "non-poet," i.e., prose writer, Sasha Newborn. The poems range from serious to whimsical, from one line to two pages, and from the Seventies to the Teens (2013! We're a teenager already!). Hidden in the structure of the book is a puzzle, revealed at the very end. See if you can puzzle it out before the end.
