"Dissociated Verses" is a collection of poems inviting its readers to step into a space of cleansed perception—a poetic field that enables the apparition of objects and phenomena as they are in themselves, as though they were uncontaminated by human subjectivity. Avoiding the traditional predicative use of the English language and favoring the use of paratactical linguistic constructions, the verses in this collection literally carve out the white space of the page to display luminous aesthetic moments.
"Intonation" is a complementary opus—an antidote to the solemnity and escape-from-emotion-ness of "Dissociated Verses." Although steeped in a similar apocalyptic vision of phenomenology, the poems in this collection clearly differ in form: they are pulled by a lyrical and symbolic drive. Winking at Blake and Baudelaire, they bring the dissociated reader back to human-ness—the symphony of joy and sadness.
