Sunday, the Locusts

Science and nature are given lyric treatment in this long poem that examines the symbolism associated with locusts. The poem shifts frequently between the microscopic and macroscopic as it probes love and loss--with a post-apocalyptic edge--in fragments of verse and a hybrid-media collage. Drawing on a variety of disciplines including developmental biology, geology, and philosophy, the poet and illustrator blur linguistic boundaries to create a unique, collaborative text. The inclusion of a notes section connects readers to the poet and artist by shedding light on the stunning intersection of artistic viewpoints in the text, meshing found text with inspired originals.

"Patternicity transforms the mundane into the otherworldly." -Quill & Quire, on Patternicity "I love Patternicity for its dirty noises ... Jim Johnstone's forms are shapely, but feral. His music is beautifully rational, complex and charismatic." -Carmine Starnino, poet, on Patternicity
