This collection of poems engages the reader to think about the everyday landscape and activities, turn the focus-lights up, and stare at what things really are: the absurd definitions explained through the surreal. Like The Dream Songs, the speaker of the book is dropped in at various junctions as another character rather than (always) as an "I." While these poems are not necessarily an overarching narrative, the sections address themes of relationship, future, and loss. The middle section titled "Dream Cities" is designed as a chapbook, at once independent of and supplementary to the manuscript as a whole.
