    This isn t so much a review as some notes I jotted while reading things Invisible Bride struck me as especially concerned with Problems of measurement Belief systems often VS problems of measurement Family self making, re making, history making Desire for capture airports, mixed tape, film, film, airport, video, written, portraitAlso, I suggest attention to the epigraph, and reading from cover to cover, start to finish Good individual poems made stronger by their progression, interaction with and echoes of each other.

    Invisible Bride is a poetic game as much as it is a book Filled with surreal, shifting, prose poems, this collection invites you into the mind of a speaker and then forces you through its labyrinthine corridors with little to no guidance and, at the end of it, no clear idea of what you just read except for a vague sense that it must have meant and that you understood at the time I don t know if the poems were about something on the whole although they were about many things They were about a man who knows a woman named Agnes, growing up, the seasons, parenting, loneliness, desire They were about eavesdropping, and jackals, and shadows, and war Most of all, if the book is about anything, it is about how our lives fail to be about things but still manage to have meaning These poems were conversations, and they didn t go anywhere any than conversations do, but being unable to draw a neat moral from them on the first reading is, at least for me, no reason to write them off as meaningless I can t get a moral from my life on first reading either.There is a remarkable effect where the poems both make sense in isolation and as a collection As a collection, they make sense in their failure to make sense, in isolation, the smaller to a point you cut them down, the straightforward they seem Part of this is that it is unclear how many poems are in the book One in six parts, each in parts Six, each in parts Forty four, some of which have titles, some of which do not, and some of which have further numbered parts Something between six and forty four, only counting as separate when there is a big section number or a title at the top of the page What this means is that it is never certain whether or not something is missed or whether two bits that I can t connect are actually separate poems So you reach the poem section Crossing a Bridge Sweetens the Body and read My shadow is down there in the water, making soft little noises I was born holding a demon s harnd This is why I always enter a room dancing My song has alternated between the song of a dog tied to a post and the song of linear subordination I m working on a new song It goes I won t hurt you, I won t hurt you, I won t hurt you and it is not clear how it relates to the poem section immediately prior, with no title It s like waking up and kissing a mirror good morning The challenge is finding a reason One approach is holding onto the ball, staying in bounds, waiting for the clock to run out There are lots of reasons strutting around, flapping their wings, but they are often stupid reasons Entire towns sell their souls for any number of reasons people die for one, maybe two reasons I have a pet chicken Echo He is my favorite chicken Had him since I was a child first chicken best chicken The night is a black moth A spoon grazing my lips The night is a black mouth I have killed my favorite chicken.The night is a black month or a red month It s late A man passes a door three or four times before he realizes it s the way out Both of these make their own kind of sense, but it is not clear if or how they relate, and a lot of their sense requires accepting the odd or impossible at face value to begin with I like that about this collection I like being asked to take strange occurrences at face value before I am permitted to attempt to see them as allegory or metaphor for the easily comprehensible And Invisible Bride asks that at every turn.

    I fought to encounter meaning to it I had it since the very first poem I read on the net, I just didnt knew what it was As the title say it, invisible bride I dint knew if I was getting married to it Or someone else was But it says it so To be in love with something invisible It may become visible if you kiss it I did so It feels new, it feels fresh, it feels provoking smiles on it s sense of humor I will recomend it deeply.

    Really, any book with the poem Unawares is going to be a book to take note of I feel that there were some of the poems that weren t given the space to be fully realized, however, the fresh imaginative spaces I read in here are very welcome.

    I kept having the sensation of having pieces of my subconscious pulled out from under me while reading these poems this was a wretchedly wonderful feeling.
