Summary expansion
Perrone's broadside 19 is the first in the final series, "series four," and includes six lines of poetry which might also describe six different images. According to the Poems for Sale website, "the poem explores the Cartesian limits of thinking in relation to the body. There is an echo of the brilliant Robert Creeley here, particularly Creeley's later poems in which he returned to Herrick for inspiration. This split of the self is suggested in the title of the poem: that we are halved by our desires and as we plunder through the "alphabet soup" of language we are destined to fall short of what it is we think we really want."
