Vision of the Camera Obscura

 

The crystalline lenses of minnows and fallfish, thin delicate films of albumen.

A meniscal loupe exposing the Garden of Eden through a minute aperture,

 

a dark chamber known to pharaohs and Arabian nights. The scattered rays

of sunlight. An Argand burner in a magic lantern, glass globules melted

Need some summer reading advice? Our authors can help! Today, Brian Bartlett (The Watchmaker's Table) leans heavily for the poetic:

Brian:mer my reading has been something of a grab-bag, as summer reading (and readings in other seasons, for that matter) should be. Have greatly enjoyed reading (which with poetry often means continually re-reading) three new books of Atlantic Canadian poetry, Anne Compton’s Alongside, Sue Goyette’s Ocean, and Eleonore Schoenmaier’sWavelengths of Your Song, along with Toronto poet John Reibetanz’s exquisitely layered Afloat.

Also got absorbed in Gerard Beirne’s brilliantly original, disturbing and moving novel Turtle, which I’ll be recommending far and wide. Returned to one of my favourite writers, Amos Oz of Israel, to read in translations from Hebrew two of his more recent novels.

The Reading Life: "Fault Lines" by Gerard Beirne

The Reading Life: "Fault Lines" by Gerard Beirne | Irish Author - Gerard Beirne | Scoop.it

I do not really want to tell too much of the plot of masterful  this story.   I will say there are earthquakes, a visits to a huge ancient meteor cavern, a serious crime, and a very difficult decision to be made as the story closes.

It is morally ambiguous story that makes us ponder the beneath surface motivations.   I think it is also about living in a culture in which one has no roots.   I think this maybe why it is set in Southern California.  There are lots of mysteries or things not explained in the story and that is part of its brilliance.

V njeno hišo sem vstopil, kot sem pač vedno počel, brez trkanja in skozi zadnja vrata v kuhinjo. Kot je tudi ona hodila k meni. Stanovala sva drug zraven drugega in odlično sva se razumela. In prijatelji, sva bila mnenja, naj si ne bi trkali na vrata. Nimajo kaj trkati. Jackie je stala ob štedilniku in s sprednje plošče dvigovala kozico, naga kot dojenček. Mleko je vrelo čez robove v velikih kremastih mehurjih, kot v kakšni reklami. Nagonsko se je obrnila, ko me je slišala vstopiti, in se brez k

Two Poems 

Gerard Beirne

Vision of the Fear of Death

Set the hounds at the oxen, let the prey upon them.
Flush the pheasants from the tules, loose the hawks and falcons.
Cast the peacocks from the tower, quaking as they plummet.
Baste the carcass on the slab, made tender in the fear of death.

The Song of the Daysbird

Moulded into being,
I melt beneath the thumb.

A tuft of golden beeswax
rising to touch the sun.
