Fallacious enjoyable. Numb from none.
Riddled run. Shuttered sun.
Spartan spun. Gutted gun.
Weeping received. Dumb and done.
lower than the Clouds
Contradictions abound -
Then and now, with out sound.
But not anything is crowned.

PRAISE FOR undesirable FAME:
Martin McGovern’s long-awaited, well-constructed first ebook supplies itself away slowly, artfully. it truly is conscientiously thought of, quietly passionate, and deeply humane.
There is an unforsaken paradise in those pages, and many ungodly anxiousness. . . . Like Dubliners, undesirable repute darkens, deepens, darkens via its sections, knowing with Joyce the tidal pull of position that would by no means allow us to continue to exist if we face up to the present . . . the “blue snow,” no longer of Dublin, yet of reminiscence, of Colorado . . . this terribly targeted McGovern aptitude for the Keatonish (Buster) apart combined with lyrical intellection, those poetic rooms with their many blue lighting, direct or oblique, for us to show on as evening comes on.
—David Lazar (from the foreword)
Here are exacting sentences, any quantity irregularly hugged into the ferocious clusters that are Mr. McGovern’s poems. My most likely favourite, “If the sunshine may Kill Us,” does heavy responsibility as a backyard unfurled at sunrise, the cherished “still sleeping,/ flame-pink welts our love leaves in your nearly/ too tender pores and skin, brazen during this light.” after which the attack of a truly assorted sentence, “Samuel Johnson is lifeless. And Mrs. Thrale./ And the sort cherub of a straitjacket/ she stored closeted should still cause fail/ him completely, where’s that deck-coat now?” via different people’s torments inspected so heavily that this morning “violence/ lingers just like the final contact of a season.” consequently: “Only as I upward thrust to tug the window’s colour/ do you wake, dusted and dazed, as from a fever.” robust as they're, the sentences, just like the centuries, are taken care of pitilessly, as you could listen, but there's what the poet calls “the shimmer of an adolescent motion picture” all through. Resilient artwork, and no loitering.
