Epigraph: One thought fills immensity. William Blake.
Epigraph: The centre is everywhere. Friedrich Nietzsche.
Author's note: To the reader. These poems are from the period between March 1998 and March 2003. They are grouped not chronologically but according to the month in which each was begun. They are not otherwise themed or schemed. And they are separate entities: 99 distinct word-thought-sound-shapes. This collection is just a way of circulating them. So please feel free to browse, flip, dip or dive in anywhere. And to read, re-read, and to read aloud.
Dedication: To Catherine (1933-1970), Eileen (1898-1989) and Barry (1931-1987).
