*Aaron Kunin. Folding Ruler Star. 2005. 61 pp.

I wasn't that interested in this when I first got it a few years back. Allowing it to age on my shelf for a bit has brought out its flavors. I like the formal conceits of it--five syllable lines in stanzas of three, poems mirroring each other with the same title, no puncuation other than parentheses. It's the perfect book to read straight through in half an hour, as I've just done.
