Review of Coring the Moon by Kenneth Frost

“The shining outlasts its day, “says poet Kenneth Frost in the last poem of this intriguing, posthumous collection.  Indeed it does. Frost’s life work hypnotizes with its dazzling mixture of surreal and natural imagery. His titles cry out specificity while his stanzas court universality.

Arrayed before us as a virtual archipelago of totem-like short poems, these selected pieces belie their presumably explosive birth with an elegance of light and dazzle. Each image connects seamlessly with their contextual whole in an artistic logic unique to this poet.

Early in the book in a poem entitled Terrorist Frost replicates the cold-blooded passion and insidious obsession of a protagonist bent on mayhem. or more of my review go here:  http://dougholder.blogspot.com/2015/05/coring-moon-selected-poems-by-kenneth.html
