Gerald England is a whiz with traditional form and structure, and this chapbook plays to all his strengths. From obviously rhymed to subtle internal couplings, these poems deftly flesh out carefully constructed frameworks of form and style, yet maintain a powerful narrative throughout. These poems are not "free" verse, nor are they postmodern; but genuinely crafted poetry in the best sense of the tradition.--Roger-Kyle Keith
