For Lack of Diamond Years Caroline Beasley-Baker read online review & book description:
An idiosyncratic collection of short poems - most under 20 lines - where questions lead the way.
The poems are a mixed set of free verse, unabashed counting forms like the Hay(na)ku and the Elfchen, and a very minimalist version of John Cage's mesostic form, along with a small number of poems based on colors, and a few that steal freely from traditional American songs.
But at its heart, For Lack of Diamond Years is a quixotic narration between realms of being - from the quotidian into the sometimes numinous, sometimes murky realm of the unknown/unknown, and on into a kind of revamped transcendental — the 'what if' and 'where am I' worlds. There is a thread of praise that runs throughout — an embrace of the joys and sorrows of thinking and feeling, of love and loss.
