WHAT could be more essential to summer than traveling to an exotic place (though it be another planet!) or playing in a rock band?
That, anyway, is where we take you with “Two Poems by Ross Taylor.” Consider it a vacation inside your own mind. (No VR headset required.)
Speaking of the mind’s capabilities, the second poem, “How to Get Through a Song,” is noteworthy because it presents simultaneous experiences. What does that mean? Read it and find out!

They started freaking about not being able to hear anything either,
“The birds have all gone quiet!”
