really liked it
bookshelves: serious, poetry
Read from January 08 to 14, 2012

Nelson's courage and valiant despair sculpt her numbered prose poems into a philosophy and geometry of blue. Andy Warhol, Joseph Cornell, Mickey Mouse, Joni Mitchell and Plato are put into the wavering conversational sea of guilt and desire. Between writing of pain and exposing pained writing, Nelson forms something half-dictionary; something approaching a poem's equivalent of a parable - expectations of blue.
