In dream states there are disembodied sensations that offer potent information. This work is patterned after the hovering of dreams. Words happen on the surface, then they dissolve into further meaning. You follow them enjoying the peaks of thought. The sonnets are mostly broken down into short protruding images and ideas, as are the sharp echoes of dream sounds. Borkhuis, a challenging poet, writes about the linguistics of sleep and how language effects both writer and reader.--Nico Vassilakis
