The six poems in this collection fuse melancholy, absurdity, excess, and joy. One poem fuses word-processing documents mined from a computer lab. Another melts and reverses the voices of a syndicated television game show; while still another quarries prime time sound bites, casting them into girders of verse.

A delightfully experimental collection of assembled language and emergent meaning. Some of the avant-garde tendencies seemed a little piled on for their own sake (the 'ancestors' section, for example), but even going through swaths of found language and nonsensical, aleatoric phrases, there was an enjoyable experience on almost every page, and it's tons of fun to see what type of things kevin gets up to when he's unrestrained.

look at all these keyboards! most people only see one keyboard at a time, but children often simultaneously perceive many, which is exactly one 'm' more than 'any'.
