Cartographies of Silence
Cartographies of Silence comprises over one hundred untitled poem fragments - what the poet calls "unconscious interruptions" - what navigate maps of being/non-being, writing/speaking/thinking, to reveal the mind-body experience where silence meets language.
“Short words, short lines, short poems. How big they are. How Vatne manages to travel so far.” -Robert Kelly
“Something essential known here, neither said nor shown. The word for its absence is remarkably not supplied. Enough space.” -Charles Stein
