LibraryThing Early Reviewers: Cloud of Ink, by L.S. Klatt

Klatt makes many whimsical connections in his verse, giving this collection an atmosphere of playfulness. His poem “Liquefaction” is a particularly fun and memorable example. Sometimes these bundles of lighthearted images allude to something deeper or darker, but in many of these poems, they are just what they seem: a lover of words at play, a gathering of “inklings.”



L.S. Klatt's Cloud of Ink won the 2011 Iowa Poetry Prize.

I give it 3 stars. Also, Happy National Poetry Month, everyone!
