What are we thinking at any given moment? What happens to a thought as that moment, on its way to oblivion, collides with its successor?

Rambunctious, witty, joyous, and bittersweet, drift is an investigation conducted by a truly unfettered imagination. In fluid, sparkling cadences, Kevin Connolly's poems let the mind's downtime have the stage for a change -- the desert sky

There is a lake
in the scene above my body
no one dares to touch -
a question, a rumour
clothed in throaty silence.

From where I sit
drowning in the garden,
I can see my fingers
fish-hooked by its
briar of stars.
- Finger Lake, pg. 24

* * *

I can't see the widow in the garden -
black scarf glaring out the sun

I don't recall the swam of fish -
garish mouths, little gasps of mud

I've forgotten the dice-box of thumbs -
their flight, fret and clatter down the hall

I've stopped thinking of the sea of thought -
weak pea
