Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"The aspiring lothario braves red jellies in the surf" below Bibbins's maximalist aerial establishment, "not conventionally pretty, not conventionally shaved, but a rail to rail against if there's time and there is." Out to defrock camp and thrust the garment onto its own forms, this debut can also quietly produce "the noise stars make when they fall."
Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

“I love Sky Lounge. Mark Bibbins splices together idioms and idiolects into cool, smooth, transporting lyrics—compact monologues that also resemble radio plays, explosive and evaporating, with no wrong moves, and with a welcome surplus of charm.” —Wayne Koestenbaum

Format: Paperback
It's been a while since I picked this one up, but I've enjoyed his poetry since Take Three. His poems stick with you like swallowed chewing gum. Years will pass without remembering you read them; then one random day, you'll be vacuuming dog hair off your brand new linen sofa and you'll have this sudden, irresistible urge to point the hose out the window and suck up the stars.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 13, 2004
Format: Paperback
Sky Lounge is a collection of free-verse poetry written with honesty and perception by Mark Bibbins. Variety and flux from day to day and lifetime to lifetime are central themes in this impressive and memorable collection. Mesh: If ever an enterprise/were doomed--/What was told to me:/gingerbread (poisoned),//strangers crushing/bric-a-brac,/I needn't have died/as many times.//Also herd of hazard/and love, the sky/over there fills with them./One to here knows//when, another to rue/the whirl. I endure,/merely, a forger/in the red bean.
