Editorial Reviews

Rhapsodic and radiant, visceral and incandescent, Roger Armbrust revels in the sonnet; he crafts his fourteen lines until they achieve rhythmic fluidity. The sublime musicality of his ear is everywhere on display, and his use of assonances such as "horns of Asian water ox-notched" strikes the listening reader as not only surprising but inevitable. Like Shakespeare's dark lady, Armbrust addresses a mysterious "love." Whether in the poet's bed, Manhattan's Union Square, Aix-En Provence, or at Earth's core-mantle of 4,000 degrees Celsius, each view is a marvel of intimacy. In Oh, Touch Me There the subject matter ranges wildly from the cedar waxwing to the "soft, pink chickpea" of "Clitoris." Armbrust dares to echo not only Shakespeare in his masterful iambic pentameter but Catullus in the grittiness that explodes lustily from his pen. This is gorgeous, explosive poetry.
