Poetry. Cuts and repetitions, combinations, inventions, and games are the make-up of this book-length poem, by turns melancholy and hilarious. Proposing the question—which route to choose?—this work is a rhythmic inquiry into possible responses. Gathering momentum from dreams, dangers, confusion, and familiarity, THE ROU OF ALCH creates a landscape and a language that makes sense of itself as it goes.
