"In these poems narrative is always slipping away just as it’s appearing. We feel the urgent of the imagination rewriting the world—as it sees it, as it wants it. 'When a thing may or may not be real,' writes Farivar, 'you sense it as a half / presence, a source,' and that is precisely the experience of reading these delightfully playful but also deadly serious poems. We sense the source, and sense it as 'full of dark matter,' which means both unknowable and necessary."
