Abstract:

Glimpse is a book of 409 aphorisms, a form that straddles the line between poetry and philosophy, yet is likely more accessible to the general public than either. Each tiny, crafted piece is not simply a distilled poem or a pre- poem or a poem explained, but rather a crystallized poetic essence -- an attempt at getting closer to, and preserving, the poetic moment or epiphany by capturing the first thoughts generated during the impulse to speak rather than the thought long held and worked and shaped.
