Consisting of three distinctly different and equally compelling experiments, FEW is a challenge to ordinary consciousness. The first section "Six Short Fictions" is a sort of elliptical, or parenthetic poetry, that dances around, or beyond, absolute meaning, excellent poetry. The second section is a long series of connective hieroglyphic-like images that develop as they proceed down and across the page, and from page to page, suggesting an investigation of how we associate meanings with lines on a page. The final section is a repeated visage which can be interpreted differently from page to page as words are added. Stimulating and provoking, FEW can be many.--Jake Berry
