Poetry. EVERY DAY IN THE MORNING (SLOW) is a work that looks and reads like no other. Sam, a composer, reflects on his floundering career, life with his lover and tensions with his father. Some thoughts, like facial hair and breakfast, are mundane; others, like love, money and war, are often overwhelming. At turns laughable and vain, at others, tender and considered, Sam's feelings and ideas turn continuously. The result is an oddly lyrical stream of consciousness that's as conversational as its appearance is unconventional.
