5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sean Hood on May 24, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a screenwriter working in Hollywood, and I have a secret habit of reading poetry, mostly contemporary poetry. This fact is likely to annoy both the fans of Hollywood movies (he's so pretentious) and lovers of poetry (philistine!) Never the less, I felt driven to write a review of this book. "Haunting, dark and evocative" sound like cliches, and the words don't do service to how much I liked Home Burial.

These poems make connections between mind and environment, human and animal, mechanism and organ. Reading them made me feel as if I were dreaming - falling inside the world of a little painting hung on a barnyard wall, morphing into a crow, into an inky black river, into a cow, into a rusty machine. The connections and metaphors left a deep imprint on my mind, and felt honestly grateful to the poet for having written them. He seemed to find words things I've felt but couldn't name.

So if you're here on this page, I suggest you buy the book. Go ahead and click. You'll read it more than once.
