To be glanced by love's arrow under the eyes of the state, the textures of wanting, the noises of watching, to be streamed through like sheer curtains and fiber optic cables. In the poetry of Sophia Dahlin and Benjamin Krusling we find ecstasy and terror, surrender and refusal, like being trapped in the interruption of a too loud siren mid-conversation. We wait for it to pass, maintaining eye contact, being filled by the sudden and ongoing knowledge of everything.
