..".full of known earthly places like the Sahara, "Old Russia," and Heathrow Airport, jumbled together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle map of the world. Art, artifacts, things, and people partake of each other's humanity and objecthood. Yet there is nothing of the dispassionate butterfly-pinner about: these objects are sympathetically alive, parts of an encompassing order, like Marianne Moore's "Nine Nectarines" ... these poems are unlike any I've ever read: deep, beautiful, and laugh-out-loud funny. -John Ashbery
