God Particles: PoemsGod Particles: Poems by Thomas Lux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mr. Lux never ceases to astound and delight me with his mastery of surreal landscapes and the possibilities of language. I don't always "get it," but I always want to.

This collection seems more personal than others, but I confess I am not sure how I would know. It isn't that there are so many voices, but the same voices speaking from different perspectives.

The title poem is a gem.

And speaking of gems, one should never say of Lux's poems that they are diamonds in the rough. In his world the diamonds are rough, and sometimes the rough shines.
