The minia­ture poems that com­prise Go On, Ethel Rack­in’s sec­ond col­lec­tion, con­sti­tute dis­tilled moments in time that para­dox­i­cal­ly extend our field of con­cen­tra­tion and vision. Focus­ing on var­i­ous kinds of sur­vival — per­son­al, polit­i­cal, envi­ron­men­tal — Go On asks what it means to endure in unsure times. By turns col­laged, diaris­tic, and panoram­ic, the poems that make up this col­lec­tion com­bine to form a kind of crazy-quilt of lyric asso­ci­a­tion and connection.
