    Elsewhere

    Scott Alexander Jones

    "There is a word for the prodigal circles we turn / alien on the outskirts,” writes Scott Alexander Jones in this book of fragmenting intimacy and emotional exile. His longpoem explores the ravished wanderings and compulsive ruptures of a contemporary romance, born in restlessness, hungry for fresh encounters on ever more uncertain terrain, “blinding & cloudscaped / & groundless.” Fidelities, to person or location, become a series of tenuous sendings, “fluctuations / begun as open winds / in the self-blown distance.” Akin to the amorous exigencies of André Breton and Robert Desnos, elsewhere takes place as rapt incantatory sound, a musical happening, “static, as in: falling in all dimensions away from."
    —Karen Volkman, author of Spar and Crash’s Law
