Lisa Fishman's Current follows The Happiness Experiment (Ahsahta Press, 2007) further into an experience of time as theater, weather, myth, insect body, plantlife, transcription, synchrony, and figment. Her poems are pressed into argument and song by means of attention to the moment and to cross-currents of making, of music, over time. Current enacts a poetics of the uncanny in very close touch with the actual, creating a field of vibrations in which the possibilities and limitations of vision and art collide and change.

"Part of what makes Fishman's work so pleasurable to read is the feeling of pure motion in the sounds and images [...], at once angular and wild, precise and hurtling."
