    The facts: AXIS Book 2 follows from AXIS Book 1: Areal as the second installment of my lifelong long poem. Written mostly on an ACER Aspire S 13 computer between 2015 and 2019, Book 2 is made of 3 microbooks – Blazar, Chorastics, Disk – & comprises 30 poems in total. Blazars; black hole objects with jet axes pointing towards earth. Chorastics; a chorus, a human cluster. Disk; the shape of some galaxies but also a compact storage device. Each microbook; equal number of lines for each register. Blazar in 3 registers (258 lines), Chorastics in 4 (680 lines), Disk in 5 (360). Ends with music.

    AXIS forges an architecture of meaning, pattern and sound that functions like the mind of the poet in process. Brilliant, rigorous and enigmatic.’ ― Rochelle Owens
