Broken Cage by Joseph Wood

In reviving the triolet form, Joseph P Wood pushes his investigative poetic techniques to brilliant if uncomfortable places. These are visceral works�daring, luminous�that in the act of recycling words and phrases discover in each new musical construct divergent realities operating a hair�s breadth from each other, and often in contention. This is a book that finds no difficulty in praising what undoes us, nor shies from sacrificing decorum for distinction�we even find salvation in the body-hopping spirit of a dead man. Here is a voice laid bare, and a poet at the height of his powers.
