Jury Citation

"These poems distinguish themselves by the quality of their poetic intelligence. They are astute, linguistically and syntactically adept, and full of sonic energy. Often startlingly precise in their descriptions, they lead us from the bodily to the metaphysical. Sometimes they flare up like fireworks; sometimes they sound a quiet sorrowing over human distances and dilemmas."
