What happens at the very moment when thought moves from the banal and everyday into the oblique and odd? In drift, Kevin Connolly investigates this mysterious mental realm that all of us tend to find ourselves in from time to time. Examining the moment when one thought collides into another, Connolly incorporates into his poems such witty, joyous ideas as a meditation on the business end of a sea cucumber and a world in which disfigured historical celebrities are left to wander the consumer grid. Constantly juxtaposing opposites to delightful effect, drift meanders into, in Connolley's own words, a place where "what starts the heart stops the world."
