"I didn't mean to hurt you, I am/ a beginner beginning to lose// sight of what I was beginning, I am/ beginning a house I am beginning// to grow filaments," explains Nelson's speaker, evoking the stutter, rush, repetition and impossibility of high-stakes communication. Her self-exacting speakers articulate the 20-something's struggle to understand, be understood, stay interested, get it right: "You have this many lines/ to get it done—what?—/ Delineate the undelineatable/ i.e. cloud, motivation." (July 15)
