A Horse with Holes in It, Greg Alan Brownderville’s third choice of poetry, employs inventive phraseology and vivid imagery to construct a particular life marked by religion, puzzled by desire, dulled by alcohol, and darkened by death. But Brownderville also skillfully uses humor to melt the disquieting images that haunt these stanzas. Unusual stories wind through these poems: Two method actors are living as lovers in a wartorn city and take the stage in an empty playhouse. A poet confesses to killing thousands of Arkansas blackbirds by means of folk magic. A preteen boy, deeply desirous about an underground religion, is pressured into marrying a dangerous demon. Brownderville’s poems read about a soulscape wrecked almost beyond recognition and dig deeply during the ruins.
