The phrase “Daydream Mechanics” is taken from the title of a book by French-Canadian poet and novelist, Nicole Brossard. This quartet recalls the awkward adventures of childhood when the backyard seemed as full of fearsome possibilities as any unexplored geography. The simple mechanics of controlling ones own maneuvers make a challenge of a cultivated wilderness.
