Aphoria

Overview


Poetry. "Few poets have the ability to record the gossamer strands of their own cognitions as Jackie Clark does. The poems in APHORIA are miraculous in the way they map a topology of quotidian thought in unassuming yet radiant language. APHORIA is something like a blueprint for the invisible architecture of the human soul. Not so much the soul that belongs to Jackie Clark, but the one that belongs to and connects all of us."—Ben Mirov

"APHORIA constellates fragments of memory, cityscape, images, & imaginings into serial poems both contemplative & seductive. It draws the reader into an embrace. Through this, the book develops an epistemology of gravity, of holding, countered by the inevitable failure to accurately remember being held. These hushed & biting lyrics are centripetal, circling the arcane core of a person's experience."—Mathias Svalina

"Jackie Clark's poetics is a poetics of spying on the prismatic philosophical underpinnings of fate. We live and love in her hopes and surrenders."—Jenny Boully
