This evening looks promising: Laura Eve Engel wrote Things That Go, inspired by the biblical story of Lot's wife (turned to a pillar of salt by God for daring to look over her shoulder at Sodom and Gomorrah). According to the book description, the poems "strain against the notion of looking as passive." The other reader, Bill Carty, is a Seattleite who edits Poetry Northwest and is the author of Huge Cloudy.
