Poetry. Hybrid Genre. Regional Studies. "We know much of what happens when we break atoms apart. Yet how much of that human history can the human voice carry? Even the flesh is an agglomerate of unstable atoms, leaking secrets. This book and its sound pieces show us how the poem, itself rattled by atomic shifts, can carry our shadows. What's left, our earthly remnants, is bathed in the light of song, like a deer leaping through in its precise talent, bones made radiant." —Eleni Sikélianòs
