BOOK stories

One factor to be acknowledged approximately Duckhorn's poetry; readers get worth for his or her funds. Duckhorn basically owes a lot to Emily Dickinson, one other girl identified for filling books to the brim with short items. occasionally, the poet has a ravishing ear for pregnant-though mundane-symbols, as illustrated in "The web Weight of the Chess Set." She usually turns out to have a true knack for phraseology, as with the fast cartoon "Who Can Master?": "Who can giggle in the course of turmoil / Whose open center be so pushed / Bend down and kiss the nice earth / And remain satisfied while shelter's now not given?"
