Description

"Bedtime for Raggedy Ann, Isis and Others" begins with a small found photograph. An unknown child holds a birdcage like an Egyptian princess. It is the time for her to dream new worlds. Maj Ragain’s response poem, “The Blue Eye Blinks Once Every Hundred Years,” ends with a call to move to the unknown.
