Word to the wise: read this love letter to what language can do for
you. M. Magnus' Verb Sap taps the very blood of language —
the textures here get at the many-fingered roots, the "crossweave fabric"
of rhizomatic namings that thrust ever outward, always "by way of a
word." here, the "Elfic D'oracle" signifies how a "single word can
change your life."
Lee Ann Brown
Reminiscent of 20th Century Russian absurdist poetry,
with its wild wordplay and philosophic underpinning,
Verb Sap's 13 th hour ruminations, break-of-day transpositions,
and in-your-face midday tagging, make it irresistible work-a-day
sneak reading. This book has a skewed rational or disorderly
relationship to American Daily Life. It is itself a life-form — for
the gobbling. Me, I broke it down by way of post-industrial nucleotides.
To great effect.
Verb Sap is smart, funny and absorbing — makes you want to move
around, read it out, a strange kind of aural knowledge. Magnus' writing
calls up the familiar, even the absurd, and twists every observation or
overheard fragment into a play of sustained revelations.
Magus Magnus lives and writes
in Alexandria, Virginia.
