A poem about a building in construction.
"A building was going up across the street. It was driving me nuts. I couldn’t get any work done, so I wrote a poem. Towards the end of its writing (8 years after the building’s completion, I’m slow), I saw more of the 'alt-right' than I wanted to, got scared, wrote some letters-never-sent that I threshed into this poem. THE ONTOLOG is a crucible—but unlike Arthur Miller’s play, it contains no witches and very little hysteria. If you turn the book sideways, in the direction of the circle, you’ll see a skyline." —Marek Waldorf
"Stay with it and you won’t see poetry or the skyline the same again."
—Douglas Crase, author of The Revisionist and The Astropastorals
