Poetry. Andrew Joron's THE SOUND MIRROR offers poetry that is both cosmic and atomic, operating above and below the normative scale of human attention. As in chemical reactions, Joron's sonic friction breaks the bonds between letters and anagrammatically reforms a new lyric. As readers, we find ourselves in a symbolic space of paradox and impossibility "where / X relaxes relation, where / X licks the elixir of / night's rhyme with light." Other books by Andrew Joron available from SPD include THE CRY AT ZERO, NEO-SURREALISM: OR, THE SUN AT NIGHT, and FATHOM.
