Dulge, rageous, couth, chalant—we examine prefixes as a number of letters that vary a notice, yet what if a observe is misplaced with no one? each one prose poem in Whelmed contains a notice that has been unhinged from its prefix, permitting new meanings—radically unexpected, but uncannily intimate—to emerge from those prefixless observe deposits. half prose-poem series and half encyclopedia of unpredictably abnormal phrases, Whelmed is from time to time deranging, nearly demanding, occasionally indifferent, and finally joyfully disrupting.
