The phrase “Daydream Mechanics” is taken from the title of a book by Québec poet Nicole Brossard. This is the fifth in a series of pieces with this title, all of which use mechanistic devices to provide the base material. 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.
