"Skeleton Costumes", the new book by Thomas Moore, sees the writer's work stripped down to its most raw and effecting form yet. Skinned of any extraneous flesh, the simplicity of the pieces bely their emotional impact and visceral depth. The short stabs and sharp explosions of verse accumulate to create an unconventional and, at times, harrowing narrative.
'Silence', a film written and directed by Michael Salerno, is an intimate portrait of the life of a ten year old girl and her eight year old brother, as an intense storm is about to descend upon their city.
In Thomas Moore's new book of poems, characters and voices swap and blur amid constantly rotating scenes of paranoia, fear and confusion. The isolated narrators that creep amongst the broken lines of 'The Night Is An Empire' lose track of themselves in the precise vagueness of language and the cruel incapacity of words. The purposeful fog that spreads makes the guilty indistinguishable and the guiltless lost.
