Ted Mathys is a brilliant, beautiful poet He applies words to the page the way an artist applies color to a canvas, and sometimes you just have to pause and stare closely at a particular combination of words or juxtaposition of phrases and allow them to soak deeply into your consciousness in the hopes that you ll remember them for later Or at least that you ll remember the way they made you feel.
1 I love the cover.
2 The poetry, especially the poems involving catalogs, is intriguing.
Overall, a strong book of verse.
