    I am a great admirer of Martha Ronk s work the subtle surfaces,her use of sentence and phrasing This may be my favorite book of hers There s a useful formal range in the sections of the book Her poetry interacting with the art of Eva Hesse is particularly moving to me, but then I also love the In the Vicinity Sequence Consider this quote from Screens and Toothbrushes and time was endless and radiantly boring, like looking through the screen to another world in which not only is reality brought [...]

    The poems in the first section didn t grab me right away I ll have to go back and read them again, now that I ve read the whole book but wow, the sequence of prose poems in the second section, In the Vicinity, is fascinating And the final section, Quotidian is lovely, and perfectly placed in the collection.

    This was interesting because of the section on dreams and the final one on the everyday and normal Many references to getting or being at home, wherever home is such as in the mind or the physical home where one grew up or moved out of or into later in life.

    I am really into the section called In the Vicinity, which consists of thirty odd linked prose poems Having trouble getting into the rest right now
