"heavenly labials in a world of gutturals"
Just made an initial reading of 'significan't ' and azimhuthwords and phrases unhinged from their original contexts are liberated from the one dimensional world of meaning into language that can be experienced through the all the senses as visual, audible, musical ........these poems make a holographic matrix of connected sense and non-'sense' that opens up all sorts of possible meanings and readings in several directions at once. The ordinary world of ordered words and rational logic is subverted into a richer more dissonant, more interesting more playful surrealism of images that overlap language with landscape or anatomy to create satisfying literary 'corpus' and invites gentle, humorous re-readings.language by being disconnected from the logic of familiar patterns of words and meanings sensitises the reader to the real power of words in and of themselves and makes us question how we construct what we take for 'reality' out of words on the page by playfully de-constructing language and literary topoiI have added these to my sticky pages library of first editions thanks alan
