Poetry. "Reading ADORABLE AIRPORT in an unadorable and overadorned airport on my way out of low-desert Arizona in high summer, I'm reminded of how useful seasons are in tracking the progress of lives and loves and all the vees these vessels contain...I hear echoes of Dickinson, Williams, and Stein, but Inger Christensen and Walter Abish also haunt this joint, as do the Talking Heads,
which is to say if you like good things, you'll like this good thing."—Ander Monson
