PAPER Voices POEMS' is a series of poetry books depicting feelings in writing.

Meeting a local woman at a service project in Appalachia, the narrator of Mike Carson's poem "Muse" hears from her "Those words, iron twang of loss," that "cut soft ideas of beauty out." Carson's lean, spare collection The Keeper's Voice unflinchingly engages those hard ideas of beauty, of goodness. Direct and often colloquial in their language and traditional in their forms -- blank verse, quatrains, sonnets -- the poems' voices arise from a wide range of viewpoints and situations: from an altar boy thawing a frozen gate lock while early Mass goes on without him, to a returning Vietnam veteran who takes up bull riding; from a boy calling cows in the pre-dawn dark, to a narrator providing instructions for teaching crows to talk; from a new cop, a Christian who must shoot to kill in a ghetto bar, to a family discovering the ashes of a stillborn child among a dead sister's belongings. One poem interweaves locker room slogans with phrases from the Requiem Mass for a friend who died playing football; another centers around a single shout from a wife to her husband threatened by an untethered bull.Refreshingly straightforward, yet suffused with weight, maturity, and passion, The Keeper's Voice projects a wise and uncompromising vision.

Reviews:
  • Tejar
This is a powerful, serious, beautiful book...so affecting at times that opening up my heart to its content is a deliberate, felt response....and, after many poems, exhilarating. There is brutality in it that can only be borne by the accompanying tenderness, the courteous thought toward others, and the attention to spare to so much beauty. The writer conveys so much of the tragedy of life in detail, very close, yet his spirit is rinsed and steadied in practiced, disciplined hope. He brings the reader to a precipice, stays with us there, and then, in the peril, carefully illustrates love.

I am deeply glad for this book.

Mike Carson weaves mundane life events into the drama of our psyches, extracting the poignant and intimate vulnerabilities we've kept to ourselves. Simple actions create profound emotional reactions. One cannot be untouched reading his work. The overlapping thoughts mirror the workings of our minds as we react along with the characters. A good solid read.
