Poetry. "The self superimposed on the world outside the window is the window, which is also the world, and to listen to a mind in fast-forward say so simply slows down one's sense of it. This is not a paradox or an aphorism. It's the tape hiss and prepared piano accompanying Stan Mir's SONG & GLASS, a poetics of deep structure and a picture of consciousness in motion. Here, the modernist tradition through the New American poetries (all of them!) meet in melody and discord and the self striving to make sense of it all and hopefully to pay off some debt in the process"—Noah Eli Gordon.
