SPACECRAFT PRESS O43: EXCERPTS FROM “DETOUR” BY SACHA ARCHER

Sacha Archer is detour.jpga Canadian writer currently residing in Ontario. Sacha was the recipient of the 2008 P.K. Page Irwin Prize for his poetry and visual art, and in 2010 he was chosen to participate in the Elise Partridge Mentor Program.

His chapbook, Dishwashing Event, Part One: Tianjin, China was published by no press, while Dishwashing Event, Part Two: Ontario, Canada is forthcoming from Puddles of Sky Press.

Detour is a conceptual translation of the Dao De Jing. The Dao is traditionally translated as The Way. This can be understood as a path. In Detour, I sent the text of the Dao De Jing on a detour, passing it through a number of automatic internet translators. Each section, passed back and forth and through the translators, was translated (altered, progressively lost and/or found) 81 times (81 being an auspicious number, and also the number of sections in the text). While the resultant text is a very different animal than the original, there is certainly an oddly vibrant fidelity of intent embedded in it.

Detour is available for $4.00 including domestic postage (+$1 non-Canadian postage). To order, please contact Ken Hunt at jkchunt@hotmail.com. Paypal is preferred. Money orders in CAN dollars are also accepted.

Colin James’s Flat Lake of Paragon is excerpted from the author’s collection of poems entitled NINETEEN POEMS. The poem functions as a kind of micro prose-poetry piece, the tone of which echoes David Lynch’s bizarre and unsettling visual language as portrayed through films such as Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive. James’s eerie vignette juggles image and language while maintaining the atmosphere of a slow nightmare.
