Robert Frost once said that we admire the straight crookedness of a good walking stick. He was talking, of course, about iambic pentameter, which this manuscript supplies in abundance--not Victorian sing-songy rhythms, but rhythms of the human voice distilled, a straight crookedness that helps us make the journey. The result? To quote Frost again, a temporary stay against chaos. I like the way these poems narrate, speak out, and think their way through experience, whether the speaker is witnessing the gelding of a stallion or weighing the costs of war or celebrating the natural world. This manuscript catalogues the humanity of wildness inside the everyday.--Lance Larsen, Judge for the 2007 Pearle M. Olsen Publication Award
