Took a walk around the old neighbourhood
- Margaret Urlich
Maybe you too live in a town like Parataxis - it's just around the corner, in the texture of a brick wall, a goal post against the sky. No coordination, no subordination: the sacred sites in your memory theatre.
A Town Like Parataxis combines image and poetry to articulate this sense of places somehow exempt from "our monotonous sublime."
