A New Geography of Time

Front Cover
Guernica Editions, 2004 - Poetry - 56 pages
In this slim volume, everyday objects become moments and forces, acting upon each other and changing the course of history. A lone cat, an abandoned piano, and a morning cappuccino are all more important than they initially appear. Moving through and influencing the world, these seemingly banal objects demonstrate and bend the laws of time, making an entire world spring to life.
