"Ways to Disappear is festooned with things that pull you into their night. Fragility vulnerability and sensuality abounds. Marshall's words linger and images surround. Often they are uncomfortable, always corporeal and elemental. Blueprints for films yet to be made. Vignettes waiting to be forced together into a confabulated whole. Recipes and thought plans. Daymares. The verse serves as a catalyst and springboard for the diving in. The swirl of a lover's hair lingers like the foam undulating at the tide's edge. Where is she? Where did she go? I'm dragging things out of my nose and onto the ice so let's put some lipstick on the pig and get things started in here."
