j/j hastain has conceived of a poetry that has created and is defined by its own language. A new language that disregards a traditional sense of time, that is indifferent to the historical. The images and words that hastain use to form sentences to form lines to form language are carefully chosen to not only displace the notion of the logical, but also the reader’s sense of direction. One section in particular announces hastain’s aim:
because the future for a hybrid
would not necessarily be
he or she but
hastain is not only defining “the future for a hybrid” but also the future of the book you are about to interact with. And that definition is not gender specific. It does not revolve around gender or time like so much of language does in the current world. Instead that future is based on a gift, a donation from hastain to us. Consider what the gift is. An a-historical language.
