a.m. achieves something quite remarkable: a calm that is a
sublimated urgency, a meditation on distance that opens into a
habitat for human intimacy: 'the emptiness that forms before love
comes'. Distance here is a prerequisite for relation, and this
writing is in relentless and passionate pursuit, courting 'you' for
its extended family, placating 'all of these things with their
gaping beaks / of light and shape and weight, all asking / not to
be left out'. One of the many joys of this artful construction is
that it is a public building, at pains to resist 'an outmoded
binary opposition between luxury and necessity'. Mandelstam claimed
'To read Pasternak's poetry is to clear your throat, to fortify
your breathing, to fill your lungs; surely such poetry could
provide a cure for tuberculosis'. In a.m., Ayres has set his sights
on the common cold.
