By K. Howe on July 13 2011
Format: Paperback
I'll get to the full disclosure in a second. This is a moving, clever, funny, and brilliant book. The opening poem (unless derivative of something I don't know about)is one of those great ideas worthy of Yogi Berra (who makes an appearance later). The opening sequence is made up of what don't look like anybody else's ghazals, each of which has at least one surprise that should your socks off, in a gently lyrical or quirky or interesting way. The poems in the middle section sometimes have what seem to me to be missteps, but all the poems pay off and are well worth reading. The least interesting section of the book is the long poem about a ferry stuck in the ice. (Full disclosure: this poem was part of my introduction to McOrmond's work years ago. I was in a poetry group with him at the time. I take no responsibility for the poem.)There are, perhaps, a couple too many evocations of the human testical. The book closes with a long string of unrelated but spellbinding apocalyptic works (with the odd squib)to make the end of the world rock. Where does he get this stuff?
