  • Afterwards on April 03, 2014

    I enjoyed this book, both the subjects and the style of phrasing. I see the informality of the words with ‘yr’ for instance standing in for ‘your’ as a grammatical symbol for the writer being vitally involved with his work, rather than as a casualness betraying any lack of detail. Because this is my first acquaintance with Kevin’s work, I would really have to become more familiar with his other projects in order to feel the style as it is evolving, but it would not be a surprise to see a further distillation of the subjects and the poems into a long book of one poem with many sections. Because I have been reading lately Philip Schultz’s work, I felt a similarity with these poems though they own their distinction.The ‘similarity’ exists in the distinction. The tone of voice which I find almost as important as the subject and as inseparable from the subject matter is one that welcomes scrutiny, and therefore attains a focus not usually found in a lot of modern poetry: leading from detail to overview, from metaphor to a fresh perspective.
