what does equipoise even mean?
Updated: May 18, 2022
Well, I don't really know, but I can tell you what it means to me. The word came to me in the middle of the title story, "Equipoise", of my collection. And it was like a laser beam, like a perfect, crisp 'thwack' of a baseball bat hitting the ball. I knew it was my word, my title, and that if I stuck this story in with a bunch of other stories I had written, it was my book. Interestingly (to me, anyway), in the ongoing tap dance of what-story-to-place-where when organizing a collection, the story "Equipoise" ended up right in the middle of the book—which to me is kind of accidentally graceful.
Here I am trying to define 'equipoise' and then reading the first couple pages of that particular story. Hope you enjoy. (7 min. listening time)
