Is life too much? Too little? Do you feel numb? Do you wish for new words to pound through your chest, to fall into some unknown? Downum's poetry creates a new reality visceral and bloody with all the stillness of a clear lake (and enjambment that will make you appreciate the weight of the line like never before.) Reading this book is something like wiggling your hand between your ribs to briefly squeeze your own heart, then release, slow and strong. An enrapturing reading experience!
