Overview


Poetry. "Deborah Meadows' GOODBYE TISSUES constructs a conduit connecting the sharpened margins of the cleaved world. Whose voice can converse with her 'speech's speech' emitting from the inward-spiral of security and denial--a place of 'toxic outflow beyond fruitful bounty'? Meadows posits a 'poetational' reply--one that is urging both a hyperrational poetic thought and identification with an a-national community. An intensely thoughtful and thought-provoking investigation, GOODBYE TISSUES leads the reader away from no-thought discourse ('intelligence as it's called') into response-ability ('A thing should be repaired by the one who made it . . .') and toward possibility where "part of its essence acquires another, other, . . . or something between them"--Diane Ward. Other titles by Deborah Meadows available from SPD include INVOLUTIA, THIN GLOVES, and ITINERANT MEN.
