Kaia Sand. Edge Books, $10 (79pp) ISBN 978-1-890311-14-8

""While/ we title our/ meaninglessness/ war,"" Kaia Sand has been writing Interval. The sequence ""Acquifer"" brilliantly cascades through ""a perfect/ sierra snowmelt,"" salty crops, China's disinformation, ""western confusion,"" ""overgrazing our conversations,"" the West Bank, ""horses hauling coca cola/ up Honduran mountains"" and ""tragedy-solution-closure,"" while the long poem ""progeny"" finds ""no nomenclature only lipstick/ where eyes would be"" in the gendered raising of our young.
