Poetry. Sandra Doller's tricky, sly language comes at you sideways, full of coinages and puns, and is obsessed with lines: the highways and train tracks that cross deserts; lines from jokes and ghost stories; and lines of influence—Gertrude Stein implicitly, and H.D. explicitly. Doller is not concerned with the complete or the perfect; she shows us the torn edge of notebook paper, "the american wastrel" in a yellow dress, and characters who plead, in a reversal of Goethe's last words, for "no more light."
