th text below is an abbreeveatid transliterasyun uv bill bissetts own descripsyun uv his latest book.

narrativ enigma / rumours uv hurricane is about the fragility and incompletion of all narratives, really. Stories, of course, can be condensed and are more portable, more understandable, and in so doing lose much of their efficacy and real accuracy—are often platforms of propaganda and spin, mostly—and what we settle for in order to experience stability, even some of the time. If there is any completion, that dynamic map, cartography, is with our makers, if we are created … Is a story longer than a synapse? Is a story mostly an incomplete construct, and is constructed by ourselves? Every story has a loophole—pieces missing from the puzzle. The frailty within the neurological story is our frailty—our fragility—our aberrantly and very elaborately framed world of mythology—the other, silence, and very chattering explanations—all part of our attempts to create civil society with human rites. Yet seeded within these benign edifices of the minds and protocols and seeming accountabilities are the gaps and shorts and over or under imbalances, needed to create, and enough to undermine and topple everything. These are the ‘rumours of hurricane,’ and why controlling psychotics can become world leaders. These problematics are also inevitably parts of all our magic. Hurricanes and rumours have high degrees of very zany unpredictabilities, and often come from the enigma of our narratives.

The narrative, non-narrative, sound, song, meditation, metaphysical, spiritual, asking, political, visual poems discuss all the issues that are raised in the title.”
