This publication is set reminiscence -- reminiscence as a poetic shape during which refractions of loss, restoration, discovery and identification shape an creative reshaping of the previous. In uncooked brushstrokes, Robinson files the sluggish cascade of occasions and characters slipping during the skinny membrane of expertise, shaping our histories. while, he experiments with kind and shape in a superbly sinuous writing. With this, his first ebook, Robinson makes a astounding debut at the North American literary degree.

From "A Short Film" by Ted Hughes it was not meant to hurt, as such, that ritual departure, no, it was instead a release: a place for tears and words and suits; a cause for dressing up the ties and cuffs an awkwardness become physical. it had been made for happy remembering — that black, that stone, that monument to and of the earth that you'd become, now physical, chiselled, and polished: a monochromatic, and so, by people who were still too young to think themselves a cargo, (something other than the mingled sweat and breath of late-night dance and drinks), you were carried on.
First, downstairs, barely leaving the lobby, then gradually making my way to the elevator and then to your floor, your wing, soon, i was all the way up to the lounge and then outside your room, you didn't seem to mind, it was tea for aunts, and triple-triples for dad and a brother along for the trip, i was experimenting, with new combinations, i was home, having a cup and a shower, when dad called and said we'd better come in. and later, when we returned with your things, there was coffee spilt — a sticky remnant; a residue on the phone, the floor, the table, it was all over and no one complained.
37 the morning as continuation —form. last night you told me of the moment when, at night, walking through that wooded path — its ripped sweater elbow tangle of darkened roots and branches — on the way back from the movies, the two of you were startled by the instant shadow of a rabbit as it, too, returned or left, of how you reacted by hoarding air (in, perhaps, a confused attempt at flight), and now, later, with the early stitching of our sleep barely, and poorly, lit by the morning sun, i, too, am caught off-guard by the brief animal of your finger as it tracks the crooked direction of my arm.
