I was originally drawn to Lamon's book because I found one of the Pain poems in a lit journal, and I appreciated the respect that poem seemed to show this concept.

When all the poems about pain start to stand together I feel they start to lose subtlety, which makes me feel they are losing pathetic respect for their subject.
