I am galled,
I am a gull
& I will
(from Half Rimed Word)
Reading the eighteen poems that comprise Stephen Bett’s Our Own Stunned Heads induces a sensation that is not unlike careening down one of those corkscrew water slides. You find yourself gathering speed, somehow negotiating the well-banked corners, gasping at velocity attained on the straight stretches, and always, always fending off a deep-seated fear that this might be the time something goes wrong, this might be the time you don’t make it before you arrive, triumphantly, at the end. What a ride!
