Conspiracy Cherry is a polyphonic and chimeric selection that sings of a entire world that supplies for its blossoms as well as its blight. That globe, both of those noticeable and covert, is ours.
“Conspiracy Cherry feels like a space the place like and war meet, on the precipice of redemption, in a natural world that supplies sustenance even as it dies. The images are as precise as they are brain-bending —
’…wind / braids air
‘Raspberries picked involving briars float / in a zinc basin / as if h2o had eyes.’
Waterfield’s poems are ephemeral markings that yearn for permanence still have produced peace with evanescence, like the touch of a lover who is not possible even when possible —
‘You’re made to inscribe / what you are poised / to strip . . .’
‘…whatever / we scratch down / for the history / rubs out with a buff.’
How near can we occur to touching fingertips with the divine right before contacting it a close to overlook or succumbing to the black rider? The poet’s musical voice answers—
‘There’s very little remaining / but test, test, attempt.’
— Kim Vodicka, The Elvis Device (Clash Publications) and Psychic Privates (White Stag)
“Conspiracy Cherry is deliciously drunk on phrases — at at the time flamboyant and refined, attracts the reader in right until you also, are ‘sand-scrivened’ and swept absent.”
— Katie Sullivan, creator of Changelings
