You may love, as I do; Dean’s acerbic commentary, or his outsider poise. Yet, this collection is just a bit off to the side of all that.
Perhaps, off the center is more to the point.
I speak not about the center of a poetic wasteland formed from nouns & verbs straining to please, but the center of all that I have become comfortable with, in reading Dean’s work.
It seems to me, when we are transiting, we are between points. In the time we spend in between: we remember, contemplate and possibly squirm in our seats. Nonetheless, we are going somewhere, but haven’t quite arrived, yet.
Dean takes us on a subway ride & gives us a transfer to surface transport.
Do you want to embrace the challenges of your own inner thoughts?
Do you want to reach a destination?
Then read The Transits Of Revelation!
