Poetry. "I read Keith's work because it haunts, and because there are beings inside each of whom sees in a clear and solitary way. It puts me in odd and disquieting places, and heads. The landscape is like nothing else I know in poetry—a shifting geometry full of other, non-declamatory minds. There are living eyes everywhere in RUMORS OF BUILDINGS TO LIVE IN, and none of them care at all about Keith or the reader. There are dogs on their own, almost enterable, and I don't know how he does that. It's also a passionate look at the children we hate, in our own sweet ways, and condemn to hell every day in exchange for a little money, and some notion of having risen above"—Larry Kearney.
