Poetry: Game Theory by Z.K. Hitzig
Some poems step out from conventional wisdom of lines and stanzas bashful and hesitant—”Game Theory” by Z.K. Hitzig is not bashful or hesitant. The atypical shape is a joy for the reader’s eye, a puzzle to put together that once whole, becomes more than the sum of its parts. Kind of like family.
Z.K. Hitzig is a doctoral student in economics at Harvard. Her poetry has recently appeared or is forthcoming in Boston Review, The New Yorker, London Review of Books, Lana Turner, Yale Review, Denver Quarterly, and elsewhere.
