Sheila E. Murphy
The Indelible Occasion

82 pages
ISBN 1-893541-24-X


The Indelible Occasion marks the first appearance of these 75 numbered works by Shiela Murphy, incorporating meditation, philosophy, investigation of language, and social critique. Each poem is a toccata, literally touch piece, played out in a free style that ultimately demands more than fixed form, and derives from those sounds invoking its conception. The Indelible Occasion extands the spirit and approach initiated in Teth and Pure Mental Breath, with new lineated pieces created during 1998-1999.
