Poetry. Imagine an ocean leaving its bed to hover above itself, where it should not be, to form a silhouette visible against an afternoon.

Imagine an ocean leaving its bed to hover above itself, where it should not be, to form a silhouette visible against an afternoon. The technology of displacement is deployed, in Andrew Petersons brilliant book, to create: not delay but fusion. It makes sense, then, to build a museum out of artifacts that would, in the wetness beyond architecture, disappear by low tide, but are instead kept. Locked away in a decaying archive, the thrown objects form perverse alliances when the lights dim. Where the genitalia should be, for example, are leafs and bugs. Intra-species, foaming, future-soaked, and with a metallic corsage delicately sewn to the wrist, the figures in Petersons poems come to get you. And they do. They get you and take you somewhere until: we are all here together in our new place--Bhanu Kapil
