A set of characters engage in a mission to destroy a building—a poem from the past. The narrator and writer intersect and part ways. The characters are extensions, fantasies. Time loops, events repeat. The book exposes its beams and scaffolding, as the writer's body in transition bears its own process. Seldom Approaches is a collection of poems, transcribed readings, and prose writings spanning nearly a decade, presented asynchronously and interlaced with narrative passages, both abstract and autobiographical.
