EROS/ION by mIEKAL aND & Maria Damon

Eros/ion is a self-eroding, unstable cenotaph indexing love lost by  
natural processes of decay, erosion, and circumstance, as well as by  
unnatural processes of violence and betrayal. Past and present,  
imagination and the everyday world of lived relationship, are re- 
activated in aesthetic exorcism. Immersion in a bed of intertexts and  
elemental cognates allows the emergence and working-through of  
delicate feelings long unexpressed. The collaborative process through  
which the text is produced mimics erosive eros, but in a sublimated  
haven of words-as-coils, connective tissue, articulated flesh,  
divided paths, collided intentions, dynamic misunderstandings and  
creative camaraderie. This proximation is a lifeline we walk from the  
woods to the kitchen, from the garden to the studio, alone and in pairs.

“eros/ion is a beautifully designed instance of hypertext poetry in  
print. There are author-produced sequences that vary from the page  
sequences, but readers may find that they want to choose their own  
paths—such is the beauty and economy of the self-contained pages  
(lexia) that they resonate as deeply on their own as they do in  
relation to all of the others. As befits the form, themes include  
writing, text and textuality, desire, connectivity and ‘erosive  
media.’"–Rita Raley

“Authors: complex entanglement of empty cloth, desire of absent flesh  
or tantra descendent: body and name having fled, as if landscape  
curled around lovers, death, theory itself. oh this is beautiful!  
future anterior turned future interior, what has been subsequent lost  
in memory, death, faint reminiscence of technology. you say 'The End  
of History': i say, there is no end to it, commentary buries itself,  
every enunciation is already a problem. to be done with it, to be  
done with a sentence, is impossible. your impossibility is our death,  
our love, as if we cannot survive the year. there are no texts, no  
talk, no theory, no putative expression, there are only murmurs, and  
this is the way this book, this moment, works against itself, as if  
there were no (as if there were only) tomorrow.”–Alan Sondheim

“This book is delicious: replete with instances of intimacy offered  
in a context of restraint. Poised and riveting in its exquisite use  
of language, eros/ion embodies a sustained and generous miracle in  
collaboration.”–Sheila E. Murphy
