Transformations Transformations first ran on atoms in strata - no forms or mantras. No fits.... A firm noon starts, as from torn satin. Soon, far tints arm far moon transits.

Praise for the Author
“Anthony, as a scenarist in an ancient theatre, scans the traces, absorbs, snatches, scratches, or shifts those obstinate narrations to refabricate or refashion, to create other contrarian constraints, set fire to certain certainties, rotate those tones, those tints, in his forensic ear or eye. His art, tiny or airy, ironic or heart-torn, astonishes the brain, enchants the senses. This shifty acrobatic craft – see it, hear it, try it!” – Mary Frances, Author of Sea Pictures and Untravelling.
“We name ‘operose’ now one sure plan. My hero, look: cuckoo book?
— cuckoo lore? — hymnal! — peruse now one sore poem, anew.”
Christian Bök, Author of Eunoia and Crystallography.
