With this book the hope is for an openness to language and imagery. I hope that some of it is intriguing enough for the reader to carry around and think through. I think the image is so important to me for that reason, that if I can make imagery that’s good enough a reader will work with that in his or her own mind. I’d like people to think about how language works, that something can affect you without necessarily having a narrative thread or a wrought philosophy or ethics to it, that it can have power and act on you even in the absence of those things.
