Part of our revived "Poetry Pamphlet Series", Sorting Facts is Susan Howe's masterful meditation on the filmmaker Chris Marker, whose film stills are interspersed throughout.

An excerpt:

Sorting word-facts I only know an apparition. Scribble grammar
has no neighbor. In the name of reason I need to record something
because I am a survivor in this ocean.
