Picture Primitive, composed in 2002, represents a single poem arranged in fifty parts, beginning with an invocation to the bastardy of language (Caliban) and traversing a panoramic geographical, cultural, linguistic and political terrain--from the nineteenth century slave trade to the 1975 dismissal of Gough Whitlam and the rise of Thatcherism and Reganomics, to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the death of the Cold War American Dream.
