How do the tercets comprising Karen Solie's "The Girls" subtly contribute to the sentiments with which the story is told in this poem?
They stayed at home. They didn't go far. Trends do not move them. From picture windows of family homes. they cast wide gazes of manifest pragmatism: hopeful and competent, boundlessly integrated, fearless, enviable, eternal. Vegas, Florida, Mexico, Florida, Vegas.
