The Sleep Accusations: Poems
Randall WatsonISBN: 1597660035;
Book DescriptionRandall Watson's first full-length collection reveals the tenderness in situations and perceptions so extreme, we would normally consider them hallucinatory. Tornadoes, floods, sudden transformations, inexplicable weeping, tragic waitresses, "A woman and a man and what lies between them, / a wall and a look, an eye, a house / in Paris, a rising, a trinity / of endurance, triumvirate / of possibility." All of this is brought with such crispness of timing, such fresh and intimate voicing, it is a great pleasure to read and recognize this world you never suspected you had known.
