This collection chronicles French poet Emmanuel Merle's three-week road trip through the American West in a rented blue Chevy. What he finds is the wilderness at the heart of his own broken traditions, his "congealed" humanity, his failed love. It is a frenetic, musical poetry made of desire, fear, and speed.
On the frozen Lost River Reservoir, I saw the unmoving / Waves. Yesterday the wind braided them. / Then the cold froze time.
