Poetry. This unique collection by Elizabeth Robinson shows her at perhaps her playful best, mingling poet with poet: two Robinsons—Elizabeth and Edwin Arlington—redefine the notion of encounter, "entering the cochlea of [each other's] ear" (to paraphrase Devin Johnston's blurb). Of course these collaborations suit poetry but they particularly suit Robinson, the newer, as blurbs from Hoa Nguyen and Keith Waldrop further underscore. In Waldrop's words, "you've come upon a good book of poems."
