New York still has authors and publishers; there are still a few used booksellers who haven’t been knocked down by the rising overhead the swan-diving dollar made. If you are reading this having visited New York lately, go have a look at Paris and Venice when you get the chance; the goal is to create an ahistoric wonderland: eternal youth, permanent fashion. These places too are reminders that money finds reasons to do something else. In her closing sonnet, “The Distance,” Wiese declares her “conviction that poetry / was the highest object of humanity.” There’s something to that, and enough in Floating City to suggest that Wiese will be serving that object for some time to come. As for the city that produced her and its regard for poetry, the outlook is bleaker.[13]
