On Kevin Varrone's g-point almanac: passyunk lost
In Kevin's Varrone's deeply serious g-point almanac: passyunk lost (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010) text is never more than an extension of texture. Varrone's deep skepticism of language is counter-braced by an aggregate interface with the living world "of wissahickon mica/ schist 'til/ heft is on us." Here, the "heft" indeed "is on us," life-force and all. In Varrone's graceful hands texture is not merely texture, but its full weight in text.
