Written with keen perception and insatiable curiosity, Chris Nealon's fifth book of poetry, All About You, is both a study of personhood and a diary of release from it. "You almost let your ego go," he writes, "but oh--/maybe tomorrow." Revolving through moments of sociability and passages of inwardness, the poet's address shifts in these poems from "I" to "you" and back again, inviting his audience to shift along with him. Out of that agility, All About You builds a generous model of what it means to pay attention, and drafts a delicately post-pandemic "we" "imagine what a healed people could do / Just flesh - full of chatter - / Hush now / Come on, let's run - "
