Finley MacDonald


Finley J. MacDonald, in this all-to-human manifestation of his oversoul, was born in the northern reaches of Turtle Island, and among its spirits cried for visions and succour. At a tender age, he was accepted as apprentice by the Butcher Poets , to whom he owes a great debt, deaf as they remain to his appeals. He believes design follows intent. He is antiwar, contemptuous of the Cruise Missile Left, and in his cups, demands that everyone read Open Veins of Latin America.

I'd escape in daytime to the hospital canteen, from which I could write & gaze over the university, surrounding cottonwoods & roofs, & the low hills beyond the river. Six years later, when I finished, I thought I might die, as I had finished what I was on earth to do.

After the fashion of a Native American conception of storytelling, the story of Clerk, or “C.” is constructed with interrelated story cycles rather than chronologically. Chapters tend to be self-contained, and the tension is related to the broader pattern that coalesces as more about Clerk becomes known.
