Poetry. Like the vast stellar bin or the blackbody that Michael Peters alludes to in this cosmic fertility myth, the primal "poems" and images that comprise VAAST B1N; N EPHEMERISI absorb all impinging radiation (the raw data that Peters' inks into it) and re-radiate an energy that is uniquely characteristic of the glowing body (the book object, and Peters himself). Bristling and oozing with storm petrels, glowvents, mutend probes, hoary tropes and other wild-type organisms, the spectral pattern of words and images is not only unique and characteristic of Michael Peters, but it's mathematically precise. It's his genetic kernel reduced to coded language and diagrammatic rhizomes, urgently re-propagated--without restraint--for our detectors (senses) to absorb, ponder and assimilate into our own beings. VAAST B1N is a visceral lexicon that is both mechanical and organic, that grates and augers down to the raw, bubbling cistern of creation.
