From Swede Burns, author of 5thSet and Evolutions, comes his first collection of poetry — Clues About Ghosts. A beautiful and harrowing tour of anarchical romance, intimacy and the resulting despair. Divided into twelve players, Clues About Ghosts is a journey through love and loss. If you like Bukowski or Plath, you'll love Swede Burns.
The most difficult part about a love ending— is that it doesn't end. It might change, but almost never does it simply end.
When you really let yourself love someone, you learn everything about them; what they've dealt with, what makes them the way they are, how they handle things, what is important to them, their weird behaviors and quirks. You learn who they are as a person, intimately, if you care about them enough; all their facts and feelings. All of that goes into a file— and you carry it with you.
Even when the relationship is done you carry these files with you. At least, I do. And there is a tremendous weight to that.
The idea with Clues About Ghosts was to unload the heaviest parts of some of those files; to turn the page- both figuratively and literally, so I can accept the catharsis that comes from it, move out of this quicksand— and carry on. As a result of the context, this work is very powerful. I know you'll appreciate it.
