Poetry. Grounded in vernacular and yet displacing it, Alan Bernheimer makes poetry that is somehow aphoristic, surreal, and down to earth. 'Speaking / in the language of things, ' FROM NATURE revels in the present: what can be said in it and with it, without permitting the future to 'spoil the present.' These poems seem to float on the surface of language, which is after all where we spend most of our time. The prose is as rhythmically propulsive as the poetry is honed and full of bright coinages ('beautilities' anyone?). FROM NATURE is a 'travel size heartthrob' where 'it feels great being anyplace' because anyplace is where Alan Bernheimer makes poems out of sheer air.--Alli Warre.
