Omtale Bleed Through
Ghost texts the overheard conversation, the remembered line, the daily paper clamor to enter the poems in Michael Davidson's Bleed Through. Here, the page is a plane for working out aesthetic problems, engaging the reader's intellect and love of beauty. Each new word or phrase calls forth another; attentions create their own nimbus of associations. Davidson's poems are a kind of battleground, where larger philosophical questions are grappled with through the sieve of language and form, but they are also a response to the vital use people make of everyday speech. Faced with hearing loss, he questions the acoustical models voice, ear, rhyme, rhythm, text upon which poetry depends and takes as his subject the problems and questions of our cultural history.From "The Second City":in the second cityI live out the dream of the firstliving neither for its access and glamournor dying from its disregardsimply talking towards the twin spiresof an ancient cathedrallike a person becoming like a person
