“‘Go play!’ advises Peary in her 3rd assortment, and we do, with ‘a tassel of rain,’ with ‘dove-colored sounds’ and ‘starter castles.’ The topos is New England archaeology; it’s Colorforms and Legos; Charley Harper landscapes develop into interiors; we're thrilled to already locate ourselves the place we couldn’t most likely get to.”—Caroline Knox, writer, Flemish: Poems


In Control fowl Alt Delete, the reader is invited to discover unusual landscapes: a few according to the ruins of latest England and others following the architectural prints of the subconscious. The reader walks via woods full of cellar holes, rock partitions, and lilac timber, and is made to think about humans long past lacking. Robert Frost meets occasions sq.. Nature intrudes in unforeseen methods on family settings—and vice versa—domestic and commercial settings seem in bits contained in the pastoral. Birds, one-dimensional yet unusually clever, flit backward and forward and rebelliously tape up their songs. The senses are completely combined, resulting in unusual mixtures and sensory reports, to states of mindfulness and snow fall distraction.

All the whereas, the subconscious threatens to interfere, with its underlined areas, its capture doorways within traditional conversations, the mazes it hangs up like “welcome domestic” banners subsequent to people’s mouths whereas they converse. The reader follows the first-person I via mazes, place of work areas, and coils of road site visitors, hoping for a few redemption, a few kind of resolution to all of the deletion.
