Velocities of transformation heat up as the poems refuse to back down from the place in the brain that makes connections. "Neurology: A Theory" places the limits of all figurative language, particularly metonymy, squarely in the region that attempts to fence in perception in what Sir Philip Sidney referred to as a jail-cell of flesh. Observes Rehm: "One gets stuck in, what is evidently,/ describing oneself." A subtle and intellectually engaging read.--Susan Smith Nash
