  1. Thanks, Michael. This style, for me, hearkens back to the signature work of "The Giant's Fence" (I got the title right, correct?) I don't know if I yet possess the vocabulary to discuss this work that hints and evades simple semantic statement, yet seems to mean at the same time. Nothing else like it.


  2. I feel like I've been telling poets how much I love their poems, but I do, and Michael' ascemic poetry is amazing.
