Dream Scythe explores the poet’s struggle with the imagination in three sections. In Section I, “Signs of Movement,” the poet first encounters the world, family, and relationships through a creative lens. As the imagination begins to take over, Section II, “The Windless Room,” delves into the “chaos” of dysfunctional and antagonistic relationships, as well as skewed perspectives. And finally, Section III, “Gustave,” is the prose-embodiment of the imagination take-over where the poet falls in love with a two-dimensional man. Through imagistic associations and inquiries into space, dimension, and geometric shapes, these poems investigate how the human obsession to create order often initiates more chaos.
