Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Laurie Lamon means to unburden herself. "I'm forgetting sex, the mother and father/mythology...I'm recanting my allegiances..." [from I've Stopped Staying Up Late to Write Poems]. Yet she is too sensitive to leave reality behind. Especially, awareness of pain holds her. This awareness is not like a root attaching her to the innards of existence, but is a sense coloring her thoughts. About a quarter of the poems have the word "pain" in the title--e. g., Pain Thinks of Heaven and Earth, Pain Thinks of the Pale of Settlement, Pain Thinks of Eschatology. Pain is sensed, though not necessarily experienced, as an aspect of reality. The relationship with and treatment of pain exemplifies how the poet is unburdened. So does Lamon emotionally, not intellectually, negotiate refreshed (though not necessarily refreshing) affinities with the qualities of human being.
