    I came to this book because it was recommended as summer reading by Alice Fulton, a poet who I admire and think is not as highly regarded in poetry circles as she ought to be After reading Rosko s book, I m not surprised that Fulton is a fan they both are very intelligent women who seem to have a good head on their shoulders, by which I mean they seem to be very sensible And they both have a fondness or a weakness, at their less satisfying moments for just about any American vernacular tur I came to this book because it was recommended as summer reading by Alice Fulton, a poet who I admire and think is not as highly regarded in poetry circles as she ought to be After reading Rosko s book, I m not surprised that Fulton is a fan they both are very intelligent women who seem to have a good head on their shoulders, by which I mean they seem to be very sensible And they both have a fondness or a weakness, at their less satisfying moments for just about any American vernacular turn of phrase While there are similarities between what I take to be a mentor mentee relationship between Fulton and Rosko Rosko got an MFA at Cornell , they do seem very different personalities which comes through in the overall tone of their poems for me, Fulton isof a touchy feely poet meant in the best sense of being highly sensory focused while Rosko is muchanalytical and cerebral In fact, I felt the first half of Rosko s book should ve been titled Raw Data Inventory sinceoften than not she is jotting down sentence fragments in the way a lab technician might jot down observational data for some experiment Rosko has a self assured definitional way of writing that sometimes feels like her confidence is overtaking her observational abilities since the subject is left out of the picture for example, one poem admittedly one of her weakest in the volume begins To say it was over and done with no harmwasn t really the case The hemlocks wind burnt, losing Fishermen wrestle with, hook salmon in high lead content water Stunned look, the redfrayed marks It s better eyes averted, bothof us tucked in, knees touching What s Discovered Is Wiped Out Huh Critical information is being either intentionally left out or simply doesn t exist and the poem just becomes a series of phrases trying to strike into some meaningful scene subject speaker In the third section, Rosko writesabout the mining community she apparently grew up in and this gives her a much needed subject that literally grounds the poems Here her penchant for getting the most out of sassy phrases works best, and her love of geologic perspective is balanced out by it being inhabited by a human community, even her family It s humblingwhat happens to flesh In myth, transfiguration seems painful the permanence of it maddened nightingale, gnarled laurel, sleeping bear.To know release your own dissolve A commissure your body into mine, the slipof being here and elsewhere You arenot you any longer The dunes shift, restructure their crescents,each particle undone Sleeping Bear Dunes I like the pun on mine and commissure is exactly the right word choice and the type of word you don t expect to find in a lot of poets vocabulary Overall this volume wasn t the rollicking good time I was hoping for when Fulton recommended it I think it was in the pages of Poetry magazine but by the end of the book, I came to appreciate Rosko s level headedness and sharp observations She is somewhat in the vein of Marianne Moore, A.R Ammons, or an Amy Clampitt, and that s a rich vein to mine

    I m biased as Emily is friend and close reader of my own work, but I love the final version of this collection I read an early version of this manuscript in the fall of 2004 and this final version is tight.I was re reading this after seeing Emily at AWP earlier this month and have two new favorite poems The Toy Divine s and Less Art, More Monkeys in addition to my old time favorites Elephant, At the Sushi Arcade, the title poem, and Even Before Your Elbow Knocked Over the Glass I I m biased as Emily is friend and close reader of my own work, but I love the final version of this collection I read an early version of this manuscript in the fall of 2004 and this final version is tight.I was re reading this after seeing Emily at AWP earlier this month and have two new favorite poems The Toy Divine s and Less Art, More Monkeys in addition to my old time favorites Elephant, At the Sushi Arcade, the title poem, and Even Before Your Elbow Knocked Over the Glass I love Emily s keen sense of form in every poem, how deliberate the shapes are on each page, the edge to each word and line that often feel as if they could cut you if you re not careful And I love how Emily experiments with form across all four sections in the book, fully using the page plane nothing turns me offthan a book of poems where all the poems sit left justified in boring blocks and yet through all these visual and spatial variations, the voice, through all its tonal variations, somehow remains unified A quality I admire

    I heard an interview where Rosko claims that there is no theme to the book, but I would say there s quite a bit of theme Whether this body conscious speaker is the poet, the book makes it sure that wherever she is from it is not without its own tangles.
