distillate01, a print selection of hypergram poetry, to be published in Spring, 2020, by Apparent.

The paperback book contains 100 poems, drawn from various hypergram sequences.

A selection of Michael Ayres’ poetry originally posted online under the moniker “hypergram”, distillate01 displays the writer’s distinctive style and unique aesthetic. Although highly contemporary, and technically advanced, the writing is often informed with a tenderness and humanity that belies its intensely philosophical nature. Calm, elegant poetry, with a classical detachment of tone, even short poems possess a complex architecture, generating linguistic openings and spaces for readers to interpret and explore. At once rich and austere, cool and engaged, passionate and distanced, the collection reflects the wide range of impulses from which it was drawn, making distillate01 a fine, varied introduction to the most recent phase of Ayres’ work.
