With his second volume of poetry Thomas Conroy has achieved reliable excellence. Whether it's Conroy's use of finally crafted personae or candid personal identity, his poems sing with life. The title poem alone is worth purchasing this book. And they're all that good. There is an intuition at work here that has twin fidelities: one to the physical world Tom inhabits, and one to the universality of mind and spirit. Read 'Rte. 395' and then 'When the Wizard Comes to Town' and you'll see what I mean. 'Beyond the Second Traffic Light' is a fantastic collection from a very versatile and gifted poet.
