In Axon Dendron Tree, Kelly's network of correspondences suggested a profound interplay between images and physical structures; by surrendering the notion of an abstract, authorial self, the poet could immerse himself fully in the Heraclitean flux and - in Kelly's gnosis - become the embodiment of cosmic process.
Rather than the repetition of phonemes - and their subsequent branching - of Axon Dendron Tree, Kelly indulges in the compounding of narratives that merge with one another, separate, veer off in multiple directions to engage with other narratives.
