Mekeel McBride is one of my favorite poets, so this was a nice find, although I was a little chagrined to see that some of my favorites of hers from earlier volumes didn't make it into her own "selected" category. This is beautiful work with language and imagery, but accessible and always about something worth saying. If you haven't read her stuff, you're really missing something, and this volume is a great introduction.
The excellent poem "Goldfish" can be found in this collection of selected poems. O! The whole book is worth that one poem...of course there are a lot of other good poems in there as well.
