Publisher's Synopsis

A collection of love poems addressed to an adverb, Anon meditates on the temporal phrase akin to the feeling of two people, two languages, two migratory histories meeting "at once" between desire and exile. From the playful verses of Tomaz Šalamun to the brushstrokes of "Two Gibbons Reaching for the Moon" by Ito Jakuchu, the arriving form of a winged Beloved unfurls a tapestry of longing despite our borders. In Anon, the voices reflect on linguistic possibilities of resilience against the silence of ecocide. Beauty becomes a source of touch and healing. The Mekong delta in Vietnam responds to the book's crystallizing force of Eros. Endangered gibbons swing from the ruins of colonial memory, and each image―rose, ape, and river―weaves into this current of music.
