    4 1/2 stars. Tight, clean, and urgent. Stein captures the grief of living--all of life's fat beauty--and the despair that rides alongside it--knowing it's a mindfuck short ride, never long enough, that you're always going to die. Especially touched by the Quarry poems. ...

    Poetry is not supposed to make sense, the mind implodes, reloads, buffaloes fly in the eye, shattered, scattered, the brain once mattered, sound is sight, your glance is a dance, insatiable thirst, one-third first, die is why we live. I have twisted art and sculpted love awa...
