In Barbara Wuest's Rhythms All Aquiver, her most diverse and far-flung collection yet, the challenge of the subject/object, and their inevitable separation, is present in the orchid, in the Chapel of the Stigmata and, most painfully, between children and parents. Again and again, she pokes at it, taking apart the seeing through the lens of a camera, an eye, and through the glass in a framed photo. These elements let us see and keep us apart. The challenge of the sec-ond-person pronoun comes through in the final poem in which the speaker struggles to engage "thou."At the same time, Wuest captures moments of lovely if often mysterious communica-tion: "Summer Silence"; "Stella and Her Late August Garden"; and listening to the Mills Broth-ers singing "Till Then." In these poems, she stresses how crucial it is to document moments that we can recognize as true even when we do not fully understand. The world is complex, and ra-ther than simplify it, she illuminates the richness of it.
