Back Cover:

I only believe that language is a field that has entrances from every world. I desire to find in that field ways my mind can go on journeys out of the place encased.

I want witness. I want report and it is better about a kinf of beauty, an image that is assembled as though for the first time true, even real. And it is in this life, connected.

I want to stay in a group playing in a field.

Don't mind the raw and jagged. The mysterious evil. The burst of blood.

There is the public work to do. The dividing of two into one. The getting out.
