The prolific and prolix Louis Jon A. Sanchez populates nearly all his poems here with discursive Subjects/speakers--they whose minds brim with troubling thoughts about all manner of things--and by being so, nearly all of them by being all-mind, make the body dematerialize, recede: the paradoxically absented body and its parts become idea or ideal itself, the spectral counterpoint/s to ones actively discoursing self or selves, oscillating between divagation and desire.
