Poetry. The poems in EARS crackle with aplomb and verve as they try to measure the distance between the ear, an organ of touch, and the often chaotic and sometimes orderly vibrations the ears permit the body to receive; in that gap between trust and faith is this collection of poems — a devotional book that prays to the senses for mercy. It's tricky.
