Poetry. Art. Film. Music. "Paul Bowles said 'whatever one writes is in a sense autobiographical, of course. Not factually so, but poetically so.' The poems here connect with nerves in bodies, pixels on screens, letters in words and the air's water content. There are unwitting dialogues with texts gone before; texts that have floated into the spaces I travel—online, on a bookshelf, in a dream, a film, another country, on the television.
"I process them < > they process me.
"They mingle with the ways I experience social and political currents (somewhere between solid and liquid: despair and hope). I try things, and sometimes something happens.
"Now, these poems float in this book for you to process < > for them to process you."—Pascalle Burton
