Ordinary Eternal Machinery is a comprised of poems written from the text of Leonard Cohen’s Beautiful Losers accompanied by short non-fiction pieces that respond to some element's of Cohen's novel that feel problematic now more than fifty years after it was written.
“What is to become of the old saints and icons? Here. Jeremy Luke Hill makes poetry of the prose of poets – rethinking, rereading, recontextualizing in a necessary and self-reflexive dialogue that is conscious of its own flaws but presses on anyway toward ‘all the disparates of the world’.” – Ben Robinson, author of Without Form
“A work of inventive homage and open cannibalism, I commend Ordinary Eternal Machinery to lovers and skeptics of Cohen alike.” – Kyle Flemmer, author of Barcode Poetry
