By Jorie Graham
"How i want to seize the realm / at natural idea," writes Jorie Graham, for whom a fowl could be an alphabet, and flight an arc. regardless of the occasion--and her paintings bargains a wealthy large quantity of them--the poems succeed in to the place ownership isn't inside us, the place new names are wanted and which means enlarged. accordingly, what she sees reminds her of what's lacking, and what she is familiar with indicates what she can't. From any occasion, she arcs bravely into the farthest reaches of brain. quick readers may have difficulty, yet so what. To the nice reader petrified of complexity, i'd provide the transparent belief that needs to bond us to such sign poems as (simply to quote 3 showing in a row) "Mother's stitching Box," "For My Father searching for My Uncle," and "The Chicory Comes Out past due August in Umbria." ultimately, the poet's phrases back: ". . . you get / simply what you will have" and (just earlier than that), "Just as / at times / we have to grab back / the entire language / looking for / greater desires."--Marvin Bell
