The post-impressionist Pierre Bonnard painted, among other things, dozens of paintings of windows. Starting there, this extended poem—part art criticism, part history—considers the phenomenon of glass, revealing the strength and fragility of our age in the minimalist style that has won Cole Swensen such acclaim.
