1. Looking for Connections: The Poetry of Lana Hechtman Ayers

"Chaos is not the lack of order / but the breeding ground of possibility," writes Kingston–based poet Lana Hechtman Ayers. Her first full–length collection, Dance From Inside My Bones, chronicles the possible connections between mostly chaotic individuals. She reads two poems that elaborate on the longing for – and difficulty of finding a true connection.
