“the stars / freeze a whisper / in the rear view mirror.”
Michael McLaughlin is both a restless and weary traveler. Countless Cinemas thoughtfully explores the difficulty of genuine connection in the midst of our everyday struggles. McLaughlin’s poetic sensibility is vivid and engaging, his aesthetic dynamic and visceral. He unflinchingly examines the subjectivity of our experience, offering readers “a universe of closet-sized cinemas / each occupied by a single person / eternally viewing a different film.”
