Poetry. "In David Gruber's SLEEPERS' REPUBLIC nature is dreaming, and we are its dreams. Time is slowed down or speeded up: 'suddenly, the sun / gives way to stars.' And: 'What we knew moves sudden / without warning / throwing us to the ground / an emptiness in the sea / The air above us filled with fruit.' It may be that love 'offers the opposite of a kiss,' yet Gruber's upended universe is nonetheless an exhilarating medium in which the reader can both swim and breathe"—John Ashbery.
