A Warm Trend
The poems in this excellent first book by Corey Brown ate informed by the dramatic landscape of Western Oklahoma. Rooted in a grandeur of natural rhythms, they range from aphorism to epic, and the rural voice which gives them a unique dignity and elevation of mind is never solely confined to regional setting. These poems are funny and smart, and I admire them.
