With the skill of a physician, David Rivard takes a meat cleaver to the poems of his book Bewitched Playground. Carefully honed edges and cut surgical steel steals the dear works and reveals a cutlet for a meal.

With the skill of a physician, David Rivard takes a meat cleaver to the poems of his book Bewitched Playground. The title poem conceals a love of the flowers of Baudelaire, "a spider in her hair," and a river, Mississippi or Seine. Rivard's best poem of the collection might be "Not Guilty. Concluding with the image of an apple cleaved by a meat cleaver, Rivard cleaves the poem's conclusion. Excellent! "January 30, 1994" is short yet memorable.

A kind of "public dreaming" takes place via the music of these poems--a music as likely to visit the long-dead ghosts of the Kwakiutl tribe as Gianni Versace, and as interested in the baby seat of a car as it is in a boxing ring. Building on the critical success of David Rivard's two earlier, award-winning books, Bewitched Playground widens both his emotional aperture and formal range. Rivard calls it "my book of domestic voodoo"--not a book about having a child, but written out of a life touched by a new intimacy, and tuned-in to an unwilled strangeness, a fluctuating gravity.

Here, the unconscious forces of the imagination intersect with the everyday, in a crossroads at the bewitched playground. These stylistically innovative poems are full of the rediscovery that the world teems with "otherness," with freshness and surprise.

With the skill of a physician, David Rivard takes a meat cleaver to the poems of his book Bewitched Playground. Carefully honed edges and cut surgical steel steals the dear works and reveals a cutlet for a meal. The title poem conceals a love of the flowers of Baudelaire, "a spider in her hair," and a river, Mississippi or Seine.

Rivard's best poem of the collection might be "Not Guilty." Concluding with the image of an apple cleaved by a meat cleaver, Rivard cleaves the poem's conclusion. Excellent! "January 30, 1994" is short yet memorable. "A kidnapping, some mook, might say" is also good. "Hope" with its mosquito and plow imagery reminds one of Baudelaire's "Femmes damnees: Hippolyte and Delphine." "Golden Year" marks a fitting conclusion to the book.

Bewitched Playground has its moments of brilliance and poetic shine. Verse poems without rhyme. Rivard succeeds in crafting poetry in prose.

I have always admired David Rivard's way of looking at the world around him as a way of illuminating the "big questions" like who are we and where are we going. He observes life from a different angle, noticing the small gestures and odd moments that make us human. In Bewitched Playground Rivard's insights are there, but I was also struck by the heart in these new poems. Rivard writes of a daughter being born and I can only wonder if that event has helped shape the playfulness of some of these poems. His observations are keen and the voice of these poems is that of someone about to tell you a great story
