Reviews - What do customers think about Noon (Green Integer)?
"When you wake up from a hypnogogic state" Jan 1, 2005
"I asked for a world/ made wholly of hands./ Oh that. That's a million/ birds as yet unformed. Ten thousand tongues." Cole Swenson's Noon is hypnogogic in its repetitions, in its turnings (I imagine whirling dervishes with broad, conical skirts perfectly flared). Her poems speak of the world's body as itself, not as "standing for" anything other. In this world, there are borders and bodies (faces, hands, lips)and birds-falling, curving, flying. In this world, "When something is in the very process of shattering all internal conflicts cease." Evocative, mesmerizing poetry that requires quiet for its reading.
