Hypnic jerks occur on the point of sleep when our brains, alarmed by the sensation of falling, send out our limbs to catch us. The poems in Hypnic Jerks - especially the two highly innovative stories in verse, 'A Green Jesus' and 'Little Bits of Harry' - seem to come from this zone, in which the settled order of apparent autobiography is disrupted or illuminated by fragments of surreal imagery or language play.
