Poetry. "He selected the great/ closed helmet: it/ might have fitted god/ or hobgoblin. The/ borrowed tape of star/ music pleased him: his trumpet of helium . . ."-from "i: the genii of a secret state." So begins THE MEMORY OF THE DRIFT, a numbered sequence of poems that, in part, gives the erasure of original material equal status with its rewriting and rearrangement. "This blur of angels:/ the trace/ of a more brilliant/ language. Some/ diminish into cloud,/ too rapid/ [ ] birds' flicker/ [ ]/ find a common shape/ in flower,/ star, Medusa's head:/ their sign." Saddlestapled chapbook.
