Missed Preflections, Refracting Back, & Other Vectors of Days, by Kellar Wilson

Kellar Wilson doesn’t bend language, and he doesn’t break it. He refashions it, reforges it, reforms it, and in the process strengthens its ability to communicate. An excerpt:

In Sane Relations And Showers II

What an incredible advance it would be
                                 to be
                            able to
               at a glance tell
if the psychosis of [the thing]
was compatible with your own.
Attractions gaining momentum
in all their dynamic senses
the closer one gets
    /to a decision/.
Glossing over (in this rush) non-trivial details
and thus, upon entering (that first time)
[things] ripple cold
(with papers signed
                     /unclothed and revealed/
two seconds too late)
/just after
(that crucial) nick of time/

—Kellar Wilson
