Deity-Alphabets
by Carroll C. Kearley




Overview -
Poetry. DEITY-ALPHABETS, Carroll Kearley's luminous first book of poems, gives testimony to Keats's knowledge that humanity's certainty resides in 'the holiness of the Heart's affections.' Plain-spoken yet naturally resonant, Kearley's poems of witness 'unravel threads of tortured talk' inherent in the lives of the homeless. He reminds us that language, our common bond, offers the vivid grammar of the spirit, the 'fractured syntax' of seeing ourselves in others, and that 'each bearer of a name/ has an irreplaceable impress.' The poet, 'his voice, a second violin' brings the beauty of these 'common flowers' to our attention, and we are so very grateful for it--Elena Karina Byrne
