In Memoriam

Hortensia Anderson
d. 21 May 2012


Hortensia Anderson, with the exception of a brief residence in Los Angeles, lived much of her life on New York's Lower East Side. She received graduate degrees from Hunter College and NYU. Her vers libre was collected in various chapbooks and in the book-length volume Trust (1995). A selection of her haibun, The Plenitude of Emptiness, appeared in 2010.

his parting words
as the screen door slams
barely an echo;
listening to the waves
I slice a nectarine
