Synopsis: Because he is so frank about his fears and so fearless about his imagery, the poet becomes a daring guide to a surreal world underpinned by the real pathos of love and mourning Molly Peacock

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Circuit Current
I dream I pass through God's veins
Streets swerve like molten pythons;
Windowpanes flash like scales.
When a billion white butterflies thrash in a glass skull,
A paperweight full of snow falls on the city
Ghosts steam from street gratings,
Clasping parts of their bodies
They considered most important the moment
They died ...
Rushing down the street, I see lamps
Blur an intoxicating light
And right here...
I enter some celestial corridor, when
Three men come toward me
Passing cars shoot their shadows forward.
Weaving into each other, like black flames
Lipped with light, the shadows consume me...
I see school windows pasted with paper mummies
Gilt and glittered by insane children
Who've crayoned hieroglyphs
Full of blood, hands that might be trees or bodies,
And parents' names spelled backward like spells
