Like the cloud chamber photographs that open each section of Anthony Robinson’s The Boundary Layer, there is an overlay of abstract science in opposition to and, perhaps, in cunning conspiracy with, the “glistening purple and white-vernixed” life that flows just beneath the surface of so many of these poems. From capturing the ramifications of the birth miracle from a contemporary male perspective to the erotically-charged fear of the dream wraith who approaches “like a wolf in an old disguise,” this is poetry of both precision and concision, keenly-observed and deeply felt.
