Poems by Daniel Rounds with photographs by Jesse Vasquez. Daniel Rounds' second volume of poetry is a rumination of what it is be a self and a body and the simultaneity of desire. Accompanied by full-color plates by photographer Jesse Vasquez, Rounds work continues to ruminate on language as inscription and definition but also as sound. Here Rounds tilts toward the physical, the coupling of one body with another, the fact of physicality as self-definition.
