OPONEARTH Timothy David Orme BlazeVOX [books]

Timothy David Orme’s mysterious Oponearth performs a gramatica parda, the tawny and unaccomodated language longed for by Thoreau a century ago. Reading here, you will walk, through a palimpsest scored by history to arrive at Origin. For this collection is—bafflingly, generously, beautifully—original, and readers will find the world informed by something close to the sound of a tree growing, when closing the cover on the last page, they are returned, newly, to the day.

—Claudia Keelan

If you want a poetry that drops you off a cliff, then suddenly hauls up the sun making you realize the world's actually cycling at speed around you while you stand awestruck read Timothy David Orme—his lyrics are vertiginous, and lovely.

—Catherine Wagner
