The Flowers of Unceasing Coincidence
Author: Robert Kelly
Publisher: Barrytown Limited (2010)
Returning from India in 1983, haunted by geometric relationships between economies and persons, by images of new ways of being alive that he had seen, Robert Kelly began this long poem. The Persian Gulf, the oil wars we inhabit, transgression and invasion, are motives as the text tries to escape the false comforts of continuity and reach the space that opens between words.
