Poetry. With robust syntax and a sense of humor, BRIGHT AND HURTLESS is committed to the discoveries made in the wild of association and remains optimistic about transformative powers made evident by language. Here, ear intersects with eye, intellect intersects with feeling, and different methods of paying attention and knowing the world are brought into contact. Invested in the unit of the word, these poems explore how a glance turns into a ricochet--what anchors, what upends, what morphs, and what remains.
