On Another Page is a collection of poems that have been pared down to the bare essentials, often delighting the reader with startling turns of phrase and constantly evoking a host of poets whose work echoes through Beyers's own. On the whole, there's a sadness to these poems that becomes almost sensory and tactile in its simplicity. But do not make the mistake of assuming these poems are simple: as you read, you discover how carefully these poems are crafted; how the images begin to build into a final, anguished crescendo.
