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

Music carries Dean Kostos to the hall of mirrors where sounds arrive before the train lands on the moon John Yau

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

Dogs, TVs

Full of blood, hands that might be trees or bodies,

And parents' names spelled backward like spells
