His book T(HERE) explores how consciousness and street life really work, not from a strictly narrative point of view, but from a kind of dark revelatory view. One sees compassion mixed with psychedelic and continual feedback from an environment that, like Brahman itself, never stops moving from the inside, and never stops at the whim of any one person's moods or needs. It is a mirror reflection of the process of a city being a city. In Hegelian terms, we could say that it's a view of the Metrogeist in full process.
Here death and life play with one another, and there is no final conclusion which would resolve itself in the possessive human sense. Rather life refuses resolution and simply continues to crayon itself, watercolor itself and sand-paint itself, being only itself. From time to time the book can be a bit disturbing, and yet it then returns in waves of comfort too. No state is held on to, but each successive phase of this megapoem grows and builds on the previous stages, leading into the live, beating heart of a metropolis which has no agenda beyond a continual urban self-revelation.
