"Visions" is a cycle of twenty-five story poems that together create a phantasmagoria of color, light, and art. Rhetorically sophisticated yet playful, the language is richly descriptive, evoking the fantastic and mythical realms of dream, madness, and vision. Meandering through these imaginary realms is a whimsical cast of characters seeking meaning, magic, and metamorphosis. A blind artist is driven to madness by dreams of light and color. An old woman steps out of time and becomes a child again. An odalisque luxuriates in sensuous indolence. A lonely little girl meets a very unusual friend on the moon. And more! In this kaleidoscopic collection, Susan Budd takes the reader on a psychedelic odyssey of the imagination where the boundaries between reality and fantasy are blurred.
