A free verse written by Lee Sonogan
A truly extraordinary work: vivid, passionate and utterly compelling. The Sound of One Hand Clapping is raw as a wound. It opens a world that is strange, brutal and poetic at once and ultimately achieves the kind of spirit-healing few novels do – Niall Williams
If a tree falls in the neck of the woods,
Does the death knell make a sound?
Phase effect correlation that is not always of causation,
More than just an eerie echo to applaud.
Finding remains coming from accoutrement Lazarus,
Utterly obliterated restrain always keeping up,
This foist is just the beginning requiring kudos,
What do you know, do you need a pickup truck?
Simple reciting things that are able to clear your mind,
Confronting by some with others exercise of futility,
Only as much as the devised artificial reveals describing,
Still takes decentralised intuition to become unmaligned.
What stop-motion does best is present real objects magically brought to life in a very imperfect situation; the hand of the artist is there, the electricity of someone touching, massaging and torturing themselves to get life out of an inanimate object. – Henry Selick
