A beautiful new review of Green-Wood in the Iowa Review by Peter Myers. It’s moving to be read so closely, and so well.
“We come to know the poem—like a cemetery, like nature—as a made thing, shaped by the material presence of the past in the here and now. To write, the poet tells herself: “First fence a voice. / Lie / down ferocious feeling.” What must be made to lie down for the fence to be constructed is precisely what Green-Wood concerns itself with, and the tension between what’s enclosed and what’s in common, what’s visible and what’s buried, what’s present and what’s erased, becomes, in Green-Wood, the force that drives the poem onward.”

Pattie McCarthy wrote a moving post about Green-Wood for Sarah Blake Schoenholtz’s National Poetry Month Daily. Thank you, Pattie!
Jules Boykoff conducted a thought-provoking interview with me about Green-Wood called “Poetry, Politics, and Perambulation,” for Jacket2. Such interactions make it possible to envision continuing as a writer, despite all the obstacles that work against. Thanks, Jules!
Tinfish editor Susan Schultz has resurrected Green-Wood with a penetrating analysis that teaches me new ways to read the thing I wrote–big gift. Thanks, Susan.
