"In their powerful tension between absence and presence, between broken narrative and richly detailed lyric, LaMon’s poetic sequences put all our assumptions about stability and permanence into question.”

GRAVITY, U.S.A. 


Quercus Review Press (2006)

Winner of the Quercus Review Poetry Series Annual Book Award

"These poems are so precise and natural that you may not, at first, notice the room and weight they are making in you--the lines break, the lines surprise, the lines ride through some very honest regions of witnessing and listening. A powerful balance is at work(ful) play, tension and exclamation, the weight of the languag(ed) self and the weightlessness of the lyric soul.”

—Thomas Sayers Ellis, author of SKIN INC.: IDENTITY REPAIR POEMS
