In his introduction, author Benjamin Kane Ethridge discusses the “gradient shadows in between” darkness and light. The poems in Venus Intervention dance and weave along the borderland between those two realms. “Part I: Morning” is a collection from Corrine De Winter. Her work is haunting and emotional. “Do I make you write ethereal music” evokes images of phantoms, operas, and deadly passions. In “Terminal,” she writes, “Even my wild horses are tethered by cold reason.” It is this vivid imagery that brings each poem to life like a point of light in a black room. “Part II: Evening” by Alessandro Manzetti serves as a contrast to De Winter. His brutal edge cuts like a knife. “The city is destroyed” he declares in “The Rope.” “Dark guts are uncoiled” and “the smell of death is too keen.” It is in the contrast of styles where we glimpse the borderland. Both poets plunge into the psyche, exposing the menace and hope that make us human. De Winter says, “you are beautiful in a certain light,” and Manzetti tells us we are merely “herds of souls” in a world of chaos. Dark, mysterious, and threatening at times, VersiGuasti 1: Venus Intervention does not disappoint.
