Poetry. "Poetry needs Michael Miller. Indeed, anyone able to write a powerfully spare pair of lines like 'He tells himself, Nothing but a woman, / tells himself, We scavenge together' rewards the reader and honors the craft. The power of Miller's writing is in his imagery, syntactical skills, and ability to capture the now of the experiential terrain. And although the image, the bright, focused instant, is never more than a line or two away, such moments of sound and sense, for ear and eye--'ocean breeze and the crash of the fountain'--are certain to surprise and excite"--Lee Mallory.
