There is a lovely and accurate review of Norma Cole's Where Shadows Will at Brooklyn Rail (scroll down a bit). SPD now has lots of these books. I have been reading her book with a consistent sense that each poem is new because of the new context. I will call this phenomenon the Alan Halsey Rule of the Always New or It Matters Where You Put It. Please pay attention, darlings. The other book I am constantly reading is Alan's new Term As In Aftermath which includes every trick in the book and then some, as they say. A lot more on this, anon.
