By Klug, Nate

Milton’s God
the place I-95 meets The Pike,
a ponderous thunderhead flowered—
 
stewed a minute, then flipped
like a flash card, tattered
edges crinkling in, linings so dark
with over the top bright
 
that, status, ready, on the overpass edge,
the onlooker couldn’t decide
 
until eventually the tip, or maybe then,
what was once printed and what have been hidden.

Uniquely between modern poetry volumes, Anyone demonstrates fluency within the paradoxes of a non secular lifestyles: “To stand someday / open air my religion . . . or retain ready / to be claimed in it.” Engaged with theology and the classics yet by no means abstruse, the entire whereas the poems stay grounded within the out of the ordinary, actual global of “what it's to think: /  moods, part moods, / swarming, then darting loose.”

Désâmé

« Désâmé », c’est du Desbiens typique et classique. Un lecteur familier y retrouvera des effets vus ailleurs, assonances, comparaisons, structures syntaxiques en parallèle, mots fétiches même.

L’originalité de ce recueil réside dans los angeles nuance nouvelle des thèmes et photographs obsédants. Une originalité troublante de vérité. Mine de rien, parmi d’autres thèmes, celui de l. a. mort qui s’y profile, et l. a. sienne entrevue de bien plus près qu’avant. À ce thème s’allie, un peu plus appuyée, sa pratique de l. a. poésie : rapports entre le poète et l. a. poésie, entre le poème et los angeles gangue de vie dont il s’extrait.

« Ce titre, Désâmé, indique en tous cas assez clairement que l’expérience de désenchantement et de désœuvrement (de déréliction ? ) qui suscite le poème touche aux fibres de l’être. Peut-être davantage, ici, que dans ses précédents opus, cette expérience en est une d’écriture, Desbiens élaborant dans l. a. première partie de son livre, judicieusement intitulée « Italiques », un artwork poétique aussi humble que malicieux, aussi désarmé que désarmant :

J’écris à los angeles main
j’écris sur du pain
sans savoir
de quelle encre
le beurrer.

Je ne sais pas
de quel poème
vient le poème. »
