Reading Genine Lentines poems--so ardent and playful, risky and affecting--I kept thinking that its not true, what Ren Char once said, that no bird has the heart to sing in a thicket of questions.

These poems plunge headlong into uncertainties of both language and life and, in doing so, they are so original that I often felt while reading them that I was in the grip of a brand new and still unnamed emotion. --Richard McCann These clear, refreshing acts of attention seem to wake us to another way of seeing, and to the problems and pleasures of saying what we see. Have we taken the act of speech for granted all along? In her short, formally inventive pieces--and especially in her dazzling long poem about languages power and limits that anchors this collection--Lentine sounds like no one else.

Her wry, astonished, aching voice is a fresh presence in American poetry. --Mark Doty Beautiful experiments from the spiraling ladder of someone who has spread out her root hairs and patiently attends the right words to assign- one who is there to honor the instant something shimmers before it disappears, be it the meaning of all this or the lack thereof, not unlike Mr.

Worthington photographing a droplets splash he so ingeniously rigged to measure. And what doesnt Genine Lentines aqueous breath expel--a disquisition on Softsoap, a sideways look at the motivational expression of Grenville Kleiser, the speed of sperm, along with a little consideration of the comma, the prefix un-, the contour of a vowel. Ms. Lentines experiments begin and end with the parent body as it breaks away, that which asks nothing of us, only that were here for it.

She is here. --C.D. Wright These thrilling poems--restless, calm, reckless, wise--interrogate themselves by hovering over moments of aching beauty, as well as utter bewilderment, until they become the world itself. --Nick Flynn
