"Blindfolding the Nearsightedness of the Body" is the book's key inquest towards obscuring the familiar senses, while lunging towards those faint and blurry fields of the metaphysical. Christopher presents us with narratives which weave between the old and new: from the century old Italian sculptor Gaetano Trentanove to the cement sculpted buildings of Santiago Calatrava, from a healer taking part in an ancient treatment to the questions and possibilities of a genetically engineered being. This theme of the indefinite displacing the tangible is further evident within his poems: from a lost painting by Egon Schiele to Karen Silve's neoexpressionist study of the cellist, from the political and natural landscapes of Gioconda Belli's tumultuous Nicaragua to the North American west of the solitary Colorado River and Grand Tetons. Christopher's second book of poetry reaffirms his unwavering voice of individuality.
