DescriptionPoetry. THE MOST NATURAL THING is like a series of x-rays symmetrical square boxes made of language, in which language is describing the anatomy of one body, and this body becomes a container of information about science, myth, memory, history, and dream. Think about a community of trees all sharing one clump of tangled roots underground, a kind of heart though above ground they seem to be separate entities. The book looks at what is separate on the surface and tries throughout to find that tangled heart."
