House of Anansi, 2006 - Poetry - 110 pages
0 Reviews
A love song to the worldless parts of the world, Airstream Land Yacht explores the inexpressible. Partly grounded in the concrete of everday experience and partly floating away in the ineffable, these poems delve into questions of conscience and problems of consciousness. Generating music from paradox, they treat the intellect as equal parts junk heap and life preserver, making for a spellbinding collection that charts a bold new direction for an acclaimed poet.
