By Allan Peterson
2009 Boom Winner
Omnivore condenses the experience of a 21st first century thinker. The poems skirt the language of philosophy, biology, starfields, and nerves. Always emotive at their root, Peterson’s poems evoke the essence of the potent unknown. Surprises resound with visual acuity, musical consonance, and leaps of intense image that reverberate line by line to fashion a riveting portrait of time.
