The Dirty Halo of Everything
Geoff Dyer. Krupskaya, $11 (79pp) ISBN 978-1-928650-16-4
""Angels getting pulled out of clouds repeatedly. The same angels, more than once."" A peculiar and compelling specificity marks The Dirty Halo of Everything, a set of seraphs by Geoffrey Dyer. Comprising six prose pieces and one serial poem (""you examined my small and fragile creation""), Dyer finds the aureole above the everyday, creating small spaces in which people might see ""symbols for stars and other contagious light""-as well as each other.
