Overpass

15.00

OVERPASS revisits Uncontainable Noise’s investment in explosive form (yodel sonnets, 100-line sonnets) via carefully packed, roughneck reductions (curtal or curtailed sonnets). The terrain is the Illinois floodplain (AKA American Bottom) across the river from St. Louis. The figure who hovers above it all is Overpass Girl, a breast cancer victim whose overpass allows drivers to pass over the damaged or diseased land that extends east (depressed industrial area that runs from Alton down past East St. Louis) of what St. Louisan Jonathan Franzen refers to in The Corrections as St. Jude, Land of Hopeless Cases.
