Tunnels Turn By Matt Mauldin, 54 pgs.

Mar 10, 2023

In this third book of poems by Matt Mauldin, formerly of the great Southern band Car Vs. Driver, I’m struck by the way that his focus zooms. What’s seemingly a poem about nature is suddenly taken to a different scale, as if the camera has been pulled back, hanging over the earth. Or, alternately, how a poem about a wooded path finds its focus instead on the bloodstream, like a miracle-of-science filmstrip in a tiled classroom. No matter the focus, large or small, Mauldin’s work continues to evolve as he makes unexpected connections easily and suddenly. –Michael T. Fournier (Hidden Partner Press, bobrobart.bigcartel.com)
