RESURRECTION PAPERS is a hybrid poem sequence embracing the idea that to think and live consciously and passionately one must walk alongside death. The poems erupt from a “convergence of urgencies” that allows anything into the charged moment of the poem and includes multiple forms. They occur as fragment, lyric, dramatic monologue, prose unfolding, and “found” journal entries, both narrative and disjunctive in style. RESURRECTION PAPERS is a book of transgression – the transgression of the individual subject by family and social strictures, the transgression through such death into existence, the transgression of language as prescription into language as desire. It is a book ultimately of freedom – of being set free through language.
