Music for the Black Room

Elemental, essential and urgent, Music for the Black Room is made vivid by poems that transport through means both spare—at times, nearly irreducible—and lush. As the world of the everyday edges into the nocturnal, quotidian moorings give way to the surreal. Mistakes of both action and perception—the siren call of delusion and dream—fuel the fabrication of a psychescape where one thing seems to be another, whether through metaphor or actual error—an inscape of wind, of snow and dirt, where sky looks like water, where water can flame into fire.
