    Scanlon is sharp witted, clever, and at times completely confusing This book reminds me of the best and worst of David Foster Wallace Sometimes, you re giggling Other times you re annoyed that the writer is too much smarter than y...

    Shya Scanlon s new book of poems, In This Alone Impulse Noemi Press, 2009 , is impossible to categorize and endlessly rewarding His ability to play with words, to jumble them, to change their meaning through all this jumble, is what makes it unique, and moving.None of the poems are longer than seven lines, and within those lines are sharp witted, playful conversations between the author and his mind, or between his mind and his external environment At times, the mind works through dreams, and many of these poems, with the way words are arranged or used and misused, hyper used even, seem to emulate dream dialogues Scanlon meets and converses with images from his past and present, his family, his childhood, a day at the beach, his loves and his struggles.Prior to the poems about poet Tony Hoagland toward the last quarter, the book is floating, metamorphosing, getting ready for something Post Tony, some of the abstraction that came before crystallizes into something concrete, a moving forward somehow, and an illumination occurs There is a little less wordplay and references to specific physical entities and beings It s as if Scanlon s awoken from his dream or out of the alone ness of s...

    What s interesting to me, is that as I read this, I thought sure, okay, arguably these poems may be all about being alone, and all about impulse, and yet what I kept thinking, is that these are riffs on relationship, all kinds of relationships, with those we love, at least those we love right now, but also with cars, money, language, and the world we are so very much of and in Maybe the point here, is that ev...

    The restraint is what stole me here, the way in which Scanlon pushes the words out and back in, the manner of his language in staying calm yet violent, darkened but sensitive to light I read each twice, and I went back to others for This is a brutally tight book.

    I wrote the poems in this book alone, in the dark, in a tiny kitchen on Orchard Street in NYC I was a new NYC transplant, and was heavily under the influence of the city I d always dreamed about.
