Revealing the instability of location and the illusory nature of identity, this poetry collection traces the edges where the multidimensional blends, blurs, and merges, envisioning a place where form is formless and perception boundless. Taking its title from Emily Carr's "Klee Wyck", which describes a strip of land that belongs to Nothing, this compendium explores the indefinite place where imagination and vitality converge to become creativity.
