Tough call since I haven't read the work, but In A World of Perfect Bones was the title that stuck with me.
Thanks for voting, Collin. "In A World of Perfect Bones" is the first line from: OSTEO - PARADIGM. In a world of perfect bones,there is no room for hairline fractures,hip replacements or herniated disks.Prostheses are nonexistent; bonesdo not snap like bread sticksor wear down like soapstone.My mother can still squeeze my hand till my knuckles run white and our thumbs become one. She does not fixate on yellowbiohazards or aluminum walkers. She studies how long the water will taketo course through irrigation ditches. In a world of perfect bones,long after cicadas turn silent and the calabrian heat subsides,my mother walks abouton that five foot high retaining wallthat separates her from her garden.
Funny, I too like the title A world of perfect bones. Hoeever as it has been used in some one else's poem maybe a re-phrasing is in order-A Perfect Boned World; A World of Bones, Perfect. But not having read any of the works involved I would have no idea if it is any good for the collection. Good luck...I'll be watching & learning
I like In a World of Perfect Bones as the title.
Paige,I got a sneaking suspicion that the author won't mind me using his line. ;-) Thanks for voting.Sam,Thanks for the thumbs up. In my mind: "In A World of Perfect Bones" & "The Fear of Open Faces" were the only real contenders.
My vote is with the majority.
"In A World of Perfect Bones" is kinda growin' on me!
I like "In a World of Perfect Bones," which seems to be where the majority is going.Thanks for posting about the chapbook process, and good luck with getting it published.
