"A strange and penetrating book. Questing and questioning full of wonder and doubt, it draws you in and down. There is no settling, but a constant distance that beckons, that once reached you could settle--if only to find one more good place to enjoy a meal, to have someone tell (me) a story."

It seems to me that our poets work hard to write poetry in the abstract sense - and prose chunks are a great vehicle for this - and this book doesn't even have a table of contents (What, contents? How passe!) - but few bother to write memorable poems, of a definite shape, with a beginning, middle and end. There is one very, very good poem in this book, which is the only reason it has stuck in my mind, and that I have sought it out again at the public library. I can't quote it in full, and it doesn't survive in parts, but it's called "Swan of Local Colors," and it's on p.33. If you could, do look for it, rescue it, for a moment, from the stacks' oblivion.
Now if only I could convince some of our smarter young poets to return to writing poems!
