A finalist for the 2012 NMP/DIAGRAM Chapbook Competition, Brandon Krieg's SOURCE TO MOUTH is a rangy collection of poems. Reading Emerson and Hopkins, "seven hundred salmon flashes in an hour," "mussels cluster[ing] on black rocks like magnetic shavings," considering the Romans and Etruscans, pointillist dandelions, "white windmills, futurist / crosses," "diminished sixths from the blanching chips / of a mouse's skull," gneiss, and coal and and and... How can we incorporate all these things into a semblance of a self, the lead poem, "I, Inc." asks us. Comprehensive and comprehending, incorporating everything it can find or read or see, Krieg's vision and voice is expansive, an experience.
