*Lisa Jarnot. Ring of Fire. 2003. 97 pp.

Avant-garde poetry should not be this fluent and rhythmically powerful, this eloquent and seemingly effortless. I've always liked "Sea Lyrics," the central sequence in this book. Jarnot is a poet with a ton of talent. I wish it really were this easy. She just takes a generative device and runs with it. I wish she made more mistakes, somehow.
