Poetry. Through its sparse yet expansive lyricism, this book enacts "a complex gestural nest," where thought is created in the spaces between poets and philosophers (Stein, Dante, Heidegger) and visual artists (Agnes Martin, the Gee's Bend quilters). This intertextuality bares the poem to its historical tendons, where a taxidermied swallow may thrive as a bottled ship. The poet's work is questioned and affirmed as song that exists "at the center of incredible volume."
