The Devastation, a performance novel or poem, is based on the fallibility of a single image: a sea-wreck in language, the lovers on the floor of the sea, a sea of poetry, current, currency, connection–the world. How do we value “impoverished speech” or try to find abundance in impoverishment? A narrative that stems from “an image that is never exhausted” whose affect pervades the function of the whole, The Devastation is a lyric exploration of relation and community.
