Poetry. A dated "poemlogue," LANDS OF YIELD transcribes Tokyo's fantastic sensorium via rigid syllabics and mutating form. In dialogue with Joe Brainard's I Remember, Bernadette Mayer's early durational works, and various diaries, the text also forays into other geographies and temporalities. "What use are these measured clues?" Anderson asks. What's worth putting down, when the documentation is too voluminous to match up to memory? "Did I mention the mottled windows?" "Who is the document's intended recipient?" "What are you reading now?" "Did I ask it in a dream?" "What would the clear material be?"
