Reviews - What do customers think about When the Eye Forms?

Powerful poetry  Oct 27, 2006
In When the Eye Forms, Dwaine Rieves writes a series of sometimes disquieting yet always beautiful poems about his experiences as a public health physician. The combination of compelling narrative juxtaposed with sumptuous imagery is the strength of these poems. He frequently takes us inside the doctor's examining room with an astute eye for detail, never letting us forget the complexities of the patients he finds there. It is hard to imagine an exquisite poem about a 5-year-old girl with gonorrhea but Rieves pulls it off in a sublime way: "...this cotton swab unlocking/ summer, a valley's red breath- /...collecting fingerprints/ from the face of cliffs." Not all the poems are medicine related, in fact some are very personal, but the medical aspect to the collection doesn't detract at all from the universal themes and emotional breadth. I think anyone who appreciates the brilliant use of language and lush imagery will be moved by these poems.
