Poetry. From the opening poem, "…mumbling in the/attic 'roof' out there, mud beyond my head…", this revised and definitive 2nd edition of John M. Bennett's classic LA M AL confirms its position as one of the poet's best works. Bennett has created a unique language to express the depth and complexity (or the complexity has created the language), of thought and emotion, or emotional thought that are the core of human experience:…"drain"a laundry think .but think re diction think a congeriesof faucets faucets like yr "running-sore" a window to amoon ."a moon all" right a tab le o yr "lips were draped…The language swarms, swells and ebbs, shatters and recoheres, turns and returns, in patterns that resonate with all the currents, hidden and visible, of the self or selves that inhabit us. An essential book that fully realizes the possibilities of language to contain and know what is.
