What Animal: Poemsby Oni Buchanan
Pub. Date: 10/27/2003
Publisher: University of Georgia Press
The world in What Animal is filled with uncontainable data, a rush of experiences tumbling one after the other, experiences whose logic is only that they have happened, or cannot be determined as having happened or not. Imagesoften spliced together in rapid succession, each with a distinct complex of emotional and associative contentoperate in "rhymes" of shape, sound, capacity for motion, texture, and number. Image patterns, sound patterns, syntactical shifts, and physical spaces recur in different forms and combinations, as if, could we only comprehend, the patterns would add up to something of galactic, even infinite, dimension.
