Tessitura, Italian 'texture', borrows a musical conceptual term, denoting the textural sweep of melodic contour — kind of safe-space — for a singer or instrumentalist. This collection is intended as an corresponding writerly-space in which I bring together various drifts of work, assemble them into poetry's visual equivalence of music's soundscape. The poems are grounded — and sometimes take flight from — the comfort-zone home of my roots in the Southwest — its continuity of personal ancestors and especially its successive memory chain of often forgotten women writers, several of whom show their presence in the central sequence Devon women; Lost W/rites.
