Musing on Momentitiousness

Momentitiousness is a book of poetry disguised as a book of short stories.  It isn't exactly verse, but it is prose written by a poet. What does this mean? It means I'm not so concerned with narrative (internal, explicit) story as I am with with capturing the beauty of individual moments. I am not so concerned with linearity as I am with tangential relationships. I am not so concerned with seeking "truth" as I am with seeking beauty.  Rather than saying, "if this, then that," I prefer to offer a whole bunch of "this, this, this," and let readers make the connections that matter to them.
