Poetry. Of his text, poet Christian Peet writes, "THE NINES might be read also as 5) unrelated questions parading as definite answers, 6) an act of resistance against narrative's stranglehold on meaning-making, via the delimiting of causes and effects, 7) a parody non-fiction's throat-clearing seriousness and eagerness to impart 'facts,' 8) an indictment of the privileging of the intellect over the senses-the hallmark of Civilization-and thus, ultimately...9) an indictment of the very idea of Civilization, that ecocidal Moloch not one fang less terrible for being a complete sham." In the THE NINES Peet creates a framework of intertextuality with an incredibly diverse range of works-ranging from Stephen Hawking's Brief History of Time to Curtis Marlow's Breakdancing, Anne Waldman' and Marilyn Webb's Talking Poetics from Naropa Institute to Kenneth Clark's Landscape into Art-creating a book of poems as energetic and iconoclastic as its sources.
