Finished Eric Baus's The To Sound... and read it again, and then again. I think this has become one of my favorite books of poetry. At first I was reading, as I do with unfamiliar work, letting the words glide by, not trying to hold on to anything. Drifting into a kind of verbal white noise... then the repetitions began to take hold. Single words repeated pages apart. Themes that were never permitted to emerge fully formed. Several poems into the book, they began to feel like dreams, dream language. I don't mean attempts to recreate or represent dreams... but the very language of dreams where every word, every slide from the expected, the syntactical derailments-- came to be charged with a seductive, subtle yet relentless pull toward an alternate reality shimmering somewhere on the far side of language itself.
