Stratification by Meghan Punschke
BlazeVox Books, 2008
All the wondrous stratifications of water, atmosphere,
myth, history, society and (of course) the chills and fevers of
colloquial lives are rigorously plotted in this dense, layered,
disconcerting book. I know of few poems as insistently scrutinizing
but empathetic, or as simultaneously devastating and resplendent.
