Hand-stitched. Blind impression letterpressed cover with gauzy handmade endpapers.

A haptic lyric; an imagined silk route, tracing networked flows of capital and a language that slowly decomposes. 

“Or did I mean history? Did I mean shale?
& of what is it collaged? How does it cohere?
Sudden queries, sudden as vendors, do they sell
fruit, sell textile? I’ve been so exact
I’ve cut corners. O obsolescence, o light brain
sifting the accidental tree, I desire cinema
in a sense all factories sense
the dilemma. Ought I
shove off?”
