Composing an arranged marriage of the bestial and humane, this anthology finds a balance between instinct and intellect. The featured poems clarify vision through the funhouse mirror—logic is strained, existence contracts and multiplies, connections amputate and then graft in incongruous ways—reflecting the human race’s own absurd image. From Nancy Reagan promoting crab salad to Paris spilling into the countryside and a hammer seeking understanding through a vase, this assemblage of often disparate elements attempts the ultimate reconciliation—that of the mind with the world.
Jamie Sharpe is the editor of the literary arts journal the Associative Press. He has contributed to numerous periodicals throughout the United States and Canada. He lives in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.
