    Weyman Chan
We live in an age of anxiety - the drills of our Nietzschean will to power are getting under the earth's green skin. Drawing on cosmologies as disparate as molecular biology, Chinese and Mayan calendars, and Egyptian mythology, Chan finds everywhere the recognition that: 'As all prey let out/sounds of deepest obligation/when they're caught, so/the binding surrounds'. "Hypoderm" is a storehouse of antidotes, in which Chan's lines 'What monster taught Adam/to see a bird and say the word' echo those of Blake: 'the name that can be named is not the real name' recall the words of Milton: and 'shouldn't the final/translation of any word in any language/be silence' invoke the teachings of Buddha.
