Becoming the Sound of Bees by Marc Vincenz

Over and beyond the pages of his new collection, Becoming the Sound of Bees, Marc Vincenz’s poems swarm, transcending set structures and standard dimensions. Some pieces align to the right margin. Others crawl down the width of the book, accommodating elongated lines or spacing anomalies. Never placid, these verses seem to vibrate out filtered memories and existential queries from a multilayered cosmic buzz. The vertiginous reader would be well advised to focus on a nearby item of solidity (try a bookcase) as a necessary counterbalance to this noise that in harmony becomes silence, a sacred silence.   For more of my review of Becoming the Sound of Bees go here:  http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2016/08/becoming-sound-of-bees-by-marc-vincenz.html
