Larissa Shmailo’s new review of B.R. Lyon’s “You Are White Inside” has just gone up at BigCityLit.com.
“Lyon’s use of sight rhymes, white space, and line breaks de-define poetic places; devices such as parentheses which end on sentence fragments or do not close help to highlight the unusual in this unusual tex.”
“Punning, reveling in the sublime and the silly both, Lyon the poet-archer does not lose sight of his target, a search for meaning and connection that pervades the book as it moves through all-too-human hats of knives, dirty hands, stinking breath, and death.”
“This beautiful collection, informed equally by mourning and laughter, offers the worldview of a keen artistic awareness.”
