In Available Surfaces , T. R. Hummer explores the artwork of constructing either poetry and tune, and of the concept that of "making" itself. He attracts on formative years reviews and studies as an grownup, as a poet, and as an explorer of unworldly areas to check that "something ineffable concerning the technique of making of which the poem is the exemplary artifact."

Hummer grew up within the deep South, and spent lots of his highschool years enjoying saxophone in numerous rock and roll bands sooner than he met poetry. This musical effect is seen in his paintings: he usually discusses poetry including song, or track with poetry, and his occupation has integrated either writing and performance.

What we have created we can re-­create.
