     Crush is a way of knowing
     It is the only way of knowing
     It is a good way of knowing.

It is a good way of knowing. This book is a fine and finished dissertation on a lovely theme--the crush, love's exciting sweet moment: "Wilderness in domesticity." Just so sexy discrete simple sentences and questions posed in the neutered affirmative carry the reader over 13 sections of a poem "with tenderness and dancing." Enticing, brave, and familiar in its language--"She is direct with a rhythm"--CRUSH is a gift.--Jeff Conant
