Gary Lemons's The Weight of Light breaks down the wall between poet and reader and invites us to meditate with him on all things beautiful and ugly, in a way that makes us proud to be a part of the world. Lemons explores human and nonhuman relationships, dissecting them just enough to give us a glimpse before sealing them back up and tucking them into the pages. He shows us the painful, the heartbreaking, the fearful--but pairs them with the magnificent and the joyful in such a way that we are relieved and elated to have them all. "The hunger in everything wants out," he tells us, and this collection contains the hunger to truly know the world. "It's here--and so am I--and so are you" and we are delighted and humbled to be here with him.
