From Library Journal:
Cole's second book presents the strengths and defects found in his previous The Marble Queen ( LJ 4/15/86). Over themes at times simply too slight to sustain it, he lays a thick veneer, inlayed with intricate imagery and buffed with high-toned diction. At his best he lets a glittering sort of lushness rise from the lines: "a Bible-belt debutante dozing beside me/ into the rich, delta incubus of Sleep." However, at times his metaphors seem strikingly inappropriate, as when he portrays his bachelorhood "pierroting in separateness: / a small cross to carry in such a long/ calvary sic of a life." Too often he serves up incoherence: "Time soaks the fire between you/ and you emerge dripping from the sea, golden/ with the voltage of Life, your palms like bronze gongs clasped." Cole shows promise, but this book is recommended only for large contemporary poetry collections.
