    The Atlantic Tunnel seemed a little inexpressive My lusterless reading couldn't escape the picture of turgid and thick ocean the title created for me the heaving shift of dark water and cold as heavy as iron Farley's poems couldn't lift me out of that oppressive undercurrent They made me feel enclosed trapped One of the striking poems here North Atlantic Corridor bristles with many of these characteristics and images Even my favorite focuses on the worst London winter in decades that of 1963 when Sylvia Plath killed herself Another recalls the night in 1959 when the plane carrying Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper crashed amid the drifted snow and bitter ice of an Iowa winter But aside from the harsh spell of darkness and death and winter I felt while reading the book I never connected because for me the poems seemed to go nowhere They didn't conclude or make a point I never warmed to them None of them became the hearth I could lean into and count on to put glow on my eager face and glimmer in my mind

    I was really excited to read this I had read Farley's poem Dependants which was in the Poem A Day email from Poetsorg and I absolutely loved it The rest of the book didn't really live up to the promise of that poem for me Some of the poems were really lovely and others just didn't strike me at all I'm glad I read it but I'm also glad I got it from the library instead of ordering a copy to keep
