Grand & Arsenal begins Bless me I am not myself, but it is not long before the probability of being blessed is revealed to be as remote as the concept of a whole self. Thus begins the book's defining struggle, enacted by a multitude of voices which move from rush to stumble and back againmeanwhile using all the tools we as a culture use to hold fear at arm's length.
We hear a familiar irony, as in On a trip West, porn in the hotel room. I can take or leave it. The climax that puts me in the seats? World's end. We hear humor, as in I believed in . . . / . . . a certain apocalypse not so much foretold as crafted / by large-brained monkeys. We hear understatement, as in knowing it does not matter / in the grandshe would say scheme, I would say / mishap. Most importantly, though, these poems allow for the fleeting triumph of an undefended voice, which appears often to emerge tentatively from a sort of exhausted collapse.
