SONNET by MATT HART

MARK YOUNG Reviews

Sonnet by Matt Hart
(H_NGM_ Chapbook Series #3)


Matt Hart's SONNET, brought out
as #3 in the H_NGM_M CHAPBOOK
SERIES, is a series of fourteen lines
each of fourteen lines, though there's
an occasional part fifteenth. It's a
bouncy little book that creates
its own momentum & draws you
into & along with it, reprising
threads of thought that generate
a continuity, a completeness. But—
isn't there always a but?— it is so
full of familiar references to the
author's friends that one occasionally
thinks it's Matt Hart's DIARY that has
                              been opened by mistake.
