Abstract or Description

To fall out of propriety - ultimately, out or property - what does it mean? The proper order is gone. 'All kinds of sputter suddenly relate to each other.' The way you hear it is going to change - the language: out of control and failing - to measure what it's supposed to. So this is not the master's voice. And the result is a different world, close by but unremarked. And Bark Leather makes this happen by calling to us with the most un-judging expressions, the ones that speak from intimate and unguarded feeling and from perception of things in whatever place they happen to be, not where they should be. The truth is things are not in their place. (William Rowe)
