Review Short: Tony Lintermans’s Weather Walks In

I think of plainsong when I read Lintermans’s poems, of cadences unadorned by instrumentation but satisfying in their sound and rhythm. They are by no means Gregorian chants, but they still offer the calmness and sonority of such songs. This peacefulness begins with the physical appearance of the book. A yellow cover with blue type: the typeface like a manual typewriter. Apostrophes are rain drops. It’s a simple but effective design. Inside, the poems are laid out equally as simply and effectively.
