In Like Bismuth When I Enter, Carlos Lara engages in the purely creative aspect of language--its synthesis of dream and waking world. In these vibrant, hallucinatory poems, inspired by the element bismuth and its iridescent, surrealist structure, Lara attempts to produce a collective surge of new imagery, new mind states, and structural undoings. Like Bismuth When I Enter captures that moment when the universe strikes one with the unmistakable reminder of mystery via the quotidian and the elemental.
