Playing off of images, ideas, sometimes even single words in the previous text, these poems radiate outward associatively to cover a vast array of topics from the nature of truth to terrorism, from the meaning of sunsets to memories of the dead, from physics and astronomy to fishing, from history to philosophy. Counterpointing Jackson's epigrammatic poems and Vivian's ecstatic prose pieces, Traversings creates a constantly shifting perspective as each begins to influence the other, "traversing each other at Numberless points," as Keats, in one of his letters, would have it.
There is a whole world here. It is made of objects and sounds. Of breath, love, and stones. Of a belief in the visible and all that's beyond sight. Jackson and Vivian—in dialogue, in echo, through and to one another—give each thing their awe-filled attention. They, in turn, are very worthy of yours.
