REVIEW é MUSICAITALIANA.CO Ñ Stephen Dobyns

DOWNLOAD Ã Velocities Velocities presents a selection of poems spanning than twenty five years in the career of Ste. Dobyns is a poet for those who like their language weave loose narrative funny profound It s not condensed poetry in general though some of the early poems based on Anglo Saxon riddles are gnomic riddling epigrammatic but rather the wise cracking writing of a poet with a great sense of sentence rhythm and of the arc of the page and a half poem He s darker than Billy Collins and funnier than Phil Levine has both the comic and the tragic masks hanging on the walls of his poemsHere s a good example of the sort of things that he does in this terrific collectionSpiritual Chickens A man eats a chicken every day for lunch and each day the ghost of another chicken joins the crowd in the dining room If he could only see them Hundreds and hundreds of spiritual chickens sitting on chairs tables covering the floor jammed shoulder to shoulder At last there is no space and one of the chickens is popped back across the spiritual plain to the earthly The man is in the process of picking his teeth Suddenly there s a chicken at the end of the table strutting back and forth not looking at the man but knowing he is there as is the way with chickens The man makes a grab for the chicken but his hand passes right through her He tries to hit the chicken with a chair and the chair passes through her He calls in his wife but she can see nothing This is his own private chicken even if he fails to recognize her How is he to know this is a chicken he ate seven years ago on a hot and steamy Wednesday in July with a little tarragon a little sour cream The man grows afraid He runs out of his house flapping his arms and making peculiar hops until the authorities take him away for a cure Faced with the choice between something odd in the world or something broken in his head he opts for the broken head Certainly this is safer than putting his opinions in jeopardy Much better to think he had imagined it that he had made it happen Meanwhile the chicken struts back and forth at the end of the table Here she was jammed in with the ghosts of six thousand dead hens when suddenly she has the whole place to herself Even the nervous man has disappeared If she had a brain she would think she had caused it She would grow vain egotistical she would look for someone to fight but being a chicken she can just enjoy it and make little suawks silent to all except the man who ate her who is far off banging his head against a wall like someone trying to repair a leaky vessel making certain that nothing unpleasant gets in or nothing of value falls out How happy he would have been to be born a chicken to be of good use to his fellow creatures and rich in companionship after death As it is he is constantly being sueezed between the world and his idea of the world Better to have a broken head why surrender his corner on truth better just to go crazy

    EBOOK Velocities I've read it three times so far so there's plenty that calls me back In his recent poems Dobyns seems obsessed with age flatulence and the word prick When he's not so male older poems like Oatmeal Deluxe and Spiritual Chickens are brilliant surreal reflections on how we confront ourselves This is what I like about Mark Strand's work as well
