Win These Posters and Other Unrelated Prizes Inside opens with a foreword, an envoi laying out the concerns of the book. The book's rhythmic geography tracks a shadow epic with its "1400 Facts," aspects of feats, or anti-feats, events on the ground, but the hero/anti-hero is "you" & "I" & "we" and the narrative is "splinters of stars." Fact/fiction, the West/Middle East, present/past, surface/depths, sound/silence-- antinomies or continua? "More Facts" marks the question, "When// does the past/ begin?" What does it mean, "to be at war"? How do we measure agency or time? Compression, compassion, rigor, reduction, focus. By means of posters, messages, notices, announcements and images. The poems, linked to one another by motion, emotion, image, diction, consider questions & "facts" - what are facts? "It is the simple fact of one's own existence as possibility or potentiality." [Giorgio Agamben, The Coming Community Ch.11] What are dreams? The book closes with "If I'm Asleep" --don't wake me.
