By L. S. Klatt

On the outside, L. S. Klatt’s poems are ethereal and humorous—with their stories of chickens wandering the highways of Ohio and Winnebago trailers rolling as much as heaven and whales bumping like watermelons in a bathtub—but just below the skin they flip disconcertingly critical as they rejoice the fluent word.

 Under the warmth of inquiry, lower than the strain of metaphor, the poems in Cloud of Ink liquefy, bend, and serpentine as they search occasionally a brand new and occasionally an old vacation spot. They current the reader with existential questions as they side-wind into the barbaric; the pear is figured as a “wild boar” and the octopus is “gutted,” but primal energies reduce a pathway to the magical and the transcendent. The poetic cosmos Klatt creates is loquacious and gorgeous, unusual and affirmative, yet by no means obvious. Amid “a maelstrom of inklings,” the writer—and the audience—must puzzle out the which means of the syllabary.
