Poetry. "Jacqueline Water pours cold water on modern poetry's flagging aspirations and ironies, and kicks up some new ones. Sharp and candid in true urban measure, she lines up variable depths with edged surfaces" --Bill Berkson. "In a minute of danger by design, the tested waters of Manhattan and her siblings overflow the poor, old, tired banks of the last penisular decade-and flashing the orchestra, spring not flood the tricks of the town" --Stephen Rodefer. "Waters has a precise sense of sound and line, and her insights, both psychological and social, are both unpretentious and acute. If these poems 'take place,' they do so in that little space between the question of futility and the futile question" --Jennifer Moxley.
