Eyelid Lick (Fence Modern Poets) by Donald Dunbar
Eyelid Lick (Fence Modern Poets)

Donald Dunbar, January 5, 2013

I like this book a lot, but sometimes it wakes me up--I'm not sure it intends to, but I can hear its breathing (maybe its breathing changes? maybe it's just a natural thing?) and my unconscious brain knows that maybe that's not how breathing should sound, or that there's an intent in the breath. I'm never scared waking up like this, at least moreso than I'm scared waking up every morning--like, which-world-is-this kind of scared, -and-will-it-eat-me--and I don't think this book wants to eat me, although it is very good and might be capable of getting through one of my legs before I could stop it. Perhaps it's better not to fall asleep with it on your throat.

I recommend this book for people who are looking for a little more from their books. Sure, you could read some other book and possibly have a nice time, like British people do on sunny days, but if you want the whole religious experience*, I'm not sure you can do better.

Also, we all want love. You will find some here.

*you know the religion I am talking about
