    Dealing with the death of his mother, the memory of his alcoholic father, and a destructive relationship with an addict as Cole mourns, this collection is surprisingly very low key Perhaps it is the way he turns to the animal world to help understand the very primal emotions he is dealing with as well as his deft use of a sonnet variant in many poems that gives the poems a quiet dignity There is one very unfortunate poem that alternates lines from a teenage torture victim of state violence with what I took to be Cole talking to his addict lover this poem mars the volume overall and seems to be an unfortunate homage to Frank Bidart But otherwise, I really loved this volume and read it as I listened to Sufjan...

    Gazing into the bar mirror,my brow and jaw less pronounced than my father s,weary at the neck, I want to be real, to think, to live.I want to press my face up to the glass and climb out Bloodstains

    I ve read Cole s Blackbird, and so I picked up this poetry book in a secondhand bookstore I frequent Some poems are striking and the tone is quite melancholy, the best of them can make your breath catch in your throat.

    Poems by a master of image and knock out closing lines, rendering the personal and specific chillingly universal Everyone mortal should read this book.

    Some poems really resonated, some seemed less personally exact, but all were a joy to run through my mind and read aloud I really enjoyed this small potent book.

    Touch is a collection of poetry from the pen of a much admired, sensitive poet, with an insight of his environment, a keen perception of his own life, his past, and the animal kingdom The book is in three parts, with a quote from someone else at the beginning of each part In the first two parts, there are 14 poems for each part and 16 at the third part The first part is mostly about his reminiscences of his early life and especially of his mother Here, the poet not only re lives his childhood but also the somberness of his parents lives and relationship If it is an animal he is writing about, that animal can act as a metaphor for his family or someone in his family Another aspect of his poetry is his mixing what it bright or solid with what is gloomy and mournful The poem Shrike especially affected me because it is so human and personal for the poet The poem begins with the admiration of the bird s beauty and shows it catching a cricket whose pain the poet feels inside him and likens the cricket to his mother in the later lines of the poem, for as a child, he has heard his father s abuse of his mother Upstairs in the bathroom, I drank water right out of the tap my lips on the faucet Everything was shaking and bumping Earth was drawing me into existence His blending the beautiful with the ugly and accepting t...

    Mother sat up, rubbed her eyes drowsily, her breathslike breakers, the living man the beach.

    the nice thing about rereading poetry that u worked hard at unraveling before is that all my notes are still there this is perhaps the first time I ve run into useful penciled marks during a reread, which makes sense, because I didn t really get the hang of it til mid college.anyway Henri Cole is also one of the few people I like to revisit touch is published with this lovely textured cover, and while it...

    Henri Cole s poem is filled with discrete and slightly surreal poems whose craft and even whose quirk display an undercurrent of intense pain The poems revolve largely around dealing the death of his mother, processing the memory of his alcoholic father, and healing from a destructive relationship with an addict The collection though, despite the pain and surreal touches, remains largely subdued and most of the emotional heft is in the undercurrent rather than the current of poems Cole has a hab...
