Bin RamkeOCOs poetry has always been concerned with separating the real from the wished-for or the feared. Ina"Matter," Ramke investigates not only the physical realities of our world but the qualities that make things important to us, that give them weight. These poems, often in the voice of a child, are full of yearning and anguish but also an appreciation for the enhanced perceptions and small pleasures to be found among the sadness. OC All lost things have the same voice, OCO he says, and this universal voice reminds us of home and family and the simple connections of ordinary lifeOCothe things that matter.
OC When I was a saint, OCO begins the first poem, OC I did not have visions but I could see and did note the color of the world.OCOa"Matter"ais an examination of and a report on the worldOCOs variable colors and possibilities for, if not sanctity, then a certain sanity, a kindness, and some form of salvation."
