Influenced by contemporary American and traditional Japanese poetic forms, as well as Quantum Theory, the poems and short tales of Small Sounds in the Brush (Fude no Sasayaki) search for a language that will accommodate the poet's growing uncertainty of self amidst the growing certainty of unfamiliar geophysical, cultural, linguistic, and artistic landscapes. The book's first two sections, set in Okayama Prefecture, move from a straight-forward series of prose-like poems into the lyric moment. The third section then manifests translation-like qualities as it seeks further definition and integration through narrative. And finally, through its quantum-like bundles (small sounds) of meaning, the fourth section suggests that a resolution of expression might more nearly exist only when language is willing to more nearly, if not unltimately, abandon itself. (Written in English.)
