Thin is the line between dreaming and wakefulness, wellness and disorder, here and there, this and that. Elana Wolff’s poems illuminate the porousness of states and relations, the connective compulsion of poetic perception, in language that blends the oracular and the everyday, the elliptical and the lucent, the playful and the heart-raking. The de- and re-constructive workings of the poems in Everything Reminds You of Something Else argue for empathy and attentiveness. At the core of this work is the belief that art is the sanest rage.
My Review: 5 STARS
This was an intriguing read and an excellent one to say the least. The way the tangled words flowed reminded me that everything does remind us of something else. The compassion and descriptions were mind-boggling, the way the poet compares one to another helps build the rhythm and rhyme with the complete taste of talent shown through poems and prose.
