Review of Alterations


I can get lost here in .42 acres / of pure amazement" George Payerle writes, and it’s this merging of the trustable and grounded with the highdrifting lyrical that impels me to pluck these two lines from his manuscript and say, ‘Look, here’s a man who does this sort of thing effortlessly on almost every page, and is there anybody like him?

It is a fine act of literary juggling to write poetry that speaks with a voice of worldly experience but still manages to keep hold of those sensations of awe and wonder that spark the imagination. In Alterations, a book filled with poems as canny as they are uncanny, George Payerle keeps those torches, and many others, delightfully spinning in the air.
