The Kraken Latitudes, haibun of Steven Carter
Steven Carter has a unique way with haibun, one in which the narrative flow doesn’t feel so much interrupted by the haiku as carried on, but without any sense of repetition. This is a very difficult thing to pull off, but he has a surprisingly good ratio of success. And one never wearies of his jocular, arresting style — he is always a good companion on this ride, and you will be the better for having him along.
“Emblematic of what I feel is Steven Carter’s talent, perhaps his genius, The Kraken Latitudes is an assembly, a do-it-yourself puzzle with limited directions which allow us to put together, not an object or objects, but a view on the world.”
