Proposition at the Walk-In Infinity Chamber by Bobbie Lee Lovell is a collection of poems about relationships, decision-making and resilience. Pivotal moments from dating to divorce are infused with ekphrastic (visual art) and speculative (science fiction/fantasy) elements, including fairy tale characters. The language is artful but accessible, and the tone ranges from wistful to brazen. Throughout the book, the theme of “the edge” recurs. Several poems describe the precarious beauty found at great heights. Others present “the edge” as a metaphorical line between despair and hope, union and separation. This book is for art lovers, hikers, dreamers and anyone who seeks healing and growth — especially those who have struggled with societal pressures or for self-fulfillment inside or outside the context of a relationship.
