THE LAST RECURRENT DREAM
THE LAST RECURRENT DREAM by Gary Lindorff
The Last Recurrent Dream is Gary Lindorff's first print collection since 1982.
More personal than Lindorff's previous book, The Blue Man (reissued by Two Plum Press, 013), the dreamscape of this text is expansive and immediate– a compelling and beguiling read. When Lindorff read these new works to a packed house, all unfamiliar with his work, at the September 2015 book release party, one could hear a pin drop– the work had found its audience.
The volume is illustrated by Lindorff's son, Evan Lindorff-Ellery, whose runs this fantastic tape label, Notice Recordings, run in much the same way as Two Plum Press.
We are thrilled to be presenting this book to the world!
You find your purpose
Where it must have slipped behind the dresser
And now your whole philosophy needs revamping.
Relinquish your place in a chip of amber,
Sand-bagged against the next hurricane of conscience
Or remorse. . .
You help someone with cigarette burns all over their body
To see something.
A home-baked loaf of bread
Silver-wrapped against spoilage.
How can one ever complain?
Dream or no dream,
Small encounters coalesce
On the eve of dawn’s dusk. . .again.
And again. Courage, truth, even love
Along with homeless thoughts,
