Synopsis

Poetry. STILL: OF THE EARTH AS THE ARK THAT DOES NOT MOVE attempts that rare "theory of everything," the implications of which are, it goes on...wave upon wave of stuff, categories, speakers, news. Employing quotation, catalogue, a roving, sometimes aerial point of view, and an ingenious use of the colon, STILL is at once a formal argument of containment, and the trajectory of twilight-modernity jacked on too much "product."

The strongest sections contain propulsive, logic-blending, untitled three-words-to-a-line poems that leave the reader wanting more, though they can get lost in the complexity of the titular series of litanies.
