Flood Editions ISBN 978-0-9838893-1-1 $12.95
“Moving with penetrating attention through avenues of cityscape and dreamscape, Michael O’Brien’s poem is a cartography of experience, inner and outer—splendors and vanishing points, snapshots, aphorisms, brief lives, the discarded ideograms of history, the eerily suspended clarities retrieved by memory—ordered by the syntactic music of a rare intelligence.”—Geoffrey O’Brien
