BOOK æ Sleeping and Waking Ë Michael O'Brien

Poetry SLEEPING AND WAKING moves between states of consciousness and the phenomenal world finding reciprocities among sleep dreams weath 15 but closer to 2 than 1 I don't dislike it that much I just didn't find myself very moved by it Except for What She Does which is 19 lines I could just swim in blissfully for a while I was surprised to stumble into delightful love with the whole thing when I hadn't loved especially any certain line in the 39 pages leading up to it I do appreciate the diamond in my rough that lingers in my mind as I well and truly close the covers and continue to move on through other things

Michael O'Brien Ë Sleeping and Waking READER

Sleeping and WakingEr and urban signs O'Brien's curiosity gets drawn to the edges of everyday life rendering each local event with concision and exactitude I liked the extreme spareness of the poems and their focus on liminality rather than some kind of autobiographical material He has a fondness for line breaks after the word the which was strange at first and the longer poems lost me My favorite poems were less compressed and obscure less characteristic of his work really perhaps that's no surprise but they are really really good
