The Absence of Thirteen, Laura Furster

The Absence of Thirteen

The Absence of Thirteen is a collection of poems driven by image and sensation, which explore the human experience from the everyday to the singular. The superstitious removal of the thirteenth floor in high-rise buildings creates a concept of otherworldly space. This space exists in our minds as part of a world of ineffable emotions and ideas. At once brief and vivid, the collected poems seek to capture the indescribable, and then set it free.
