Luke Davies, The Feral Aphorisms
A dense, tight yet playful cluster that rewards repeated readings (at varied speeds!), Luke Davies' second Vagabond offering, Feral Aphorisms, plays with the form by imitating its structure, if not always its spirit; sometimes, they really are aphorisms. At other times the form operates as pure Trojan Horse: something beautiful, strange, ecstatic is smuggled to us, a kind of litany of yearning, and of the sheer surprise of being in a body that is to die.
