Poetry. This book records a sustained plunge into the imaginative elixir of a dream. The dream starts with a waking vision — "the door of the train flew open" — and continues as reverberations in the sensorium, the seat of felt thought. With the sonnet as its anchor note, the symphony blends the machine's body and the garden, crash and after-sound.
