Review of Sometimes Full of Daylight by Owen Lewis

Owen Lewis in his first book, Sometimes Full of Daylight, hammers his poems into place as life’s turbulence swirls about him. His clear-eyed, but always passionate, words glint with strange grief-ridden insight from that other-worldly and profound calmness he finds within the eye of his own personal storm. He rails against the gods of this imperfect world and the irrationality of their institutions. In short, like many of us, he tries to hold his family and loved ones together, anchoring them, keeping them from spinning away into the sparking sun and certain annihilation.
