Poetry. Both sensuous and sensual, THESE INDICIUM TALES continues Lance Phillips's meditations on the body. Here, the indicia--markings or symbols--are birds, insects, and flowers, but rather than standing for the body, they stand with it in an exploration that refuses to romanticize nature. In this phenomenology of eros, where Phillips writes "I can't think of a way of continuing which is not sexually charged," no word is wasted. This volume is a continuation of the work begun in CORPUS SOCIUS and CUR ALIQUID VIDI.
