Inspired by the carpenter s biscuit joint a seamless, undetectable fit between pieces of wood David Kirby s latest collection dramatizes the artistic mind as a hidden connection that links the mundane with the remarkable. Even in our most ordinary actions, Kirby shows, there lies a wealth of creative inspiration: the poem that is written every day if we re there / to read it.
Well known for his garrulous and comic musings, Kirby follows a wandering yet calculated path. In What s the Plan, Artists? a girl s yawning in a picture gallery leads him to meditations on subjects as diverse as musical composition, the less-than-beautiful human figure, and the simple pleasures / of living. The Biscuit Joint traverses seemingly random thoughts so methodically that the journey from beginning to end always proves satisfying and surprising.
