there is something both cohesive and all over the place in this collection. basically, i love it. sometimes i thought the book meant more to the author than it could for the reader, but that seemed attractive as i was reading it.

I picked up Noelle Kocot's 4 at the library. I just got done reading Matthew Zapruder's The Pajamaist which included the great poem series "Twenty Poems for Noelle." I don't think this is the same Noelle he was talking about, but it is why I borrowed the book.

Her book was good. I liked her free verse poems better than the few in the book that were in form. She had a few sestinas that were pretty good, but there were some awkward lines to make the form work, the same in the couple of rhyming poem
