MAKE SHOW, Robin Lee’s third chapbook, can best be described as a nocturne: a work suggestive of the night. In this collection Lee serves up a tightly integrated series of mysterious, dreamlike, fractured-narrative poems that explore some of the inevitable dark elements of - as he puts it in The Attic - "every full-lived life." It is a dream, a dream we share as these elements are examined, processed, and integrated. It is a pleasure to join the poet on this wondrous and engaging journey.
