About the Book

Sensations of Travel is a collection from JS Venit's first five volumes of poems (Portait of a Mood of on Stilts , Skating Backwards, In the Time of Things, Green Colorless Ideas, Mnenomic Devices and Paper Losses) and includes some (then) new poems so that it spans the period from 1990 - 2010.  Venit's poems are aethereal -- like skywriting and seem to vanish soon after they first appear leaving behind the sensation of travel  --  of having been somewhere that, at the time, seemed, important and enjoyable enough, but like the passing of a dream or Freudian oublie has left an evasive and allusive trace, no more than a distant image of what had once been lived fully and felt but is now reduced  to a wisp of cloud  rapidly receding into a distance that can only be faintly touched, with, in the earier poems, a twinge of regret and oddly or miraculously in the later ones, a thin veneer of pleasure.
