There are quite a few good moments in this collection. I particularly like the poem "Somnambulism" in which the page is formatted as 2 columns in order to "guard" the production. The speaker says, "I could, at the very least, protect my productions. To protect one production I imagined especially vulnerable I produced other productions to act as its guards."
There are intriguing passages throughout, for example, from part II of "The Garden of Eden a College": "all beauty is felt as command/ in the phantasm of double touch/ my hand on your right knee/ with sealing wax accuracy," & from "Pleasurologist":"Despite the pleasure we found--we found pleasure// Rather cautious, found caution/ A lie: now can barely find/ Our own reflected light/ Hear nothing but a plow going by." Probably the only reason I haven't rated this book of poetry as 4 star is that my reading mind is currently too distracted to make such an assessment. ( )
