Parker's poems about love and broken hearts are rendered in traditional meters with an airy, off-handed tone similiar to the one Edna St. Vincent Millay perfected in her work. I admire the speaker's persona: an acid-tongued chronicler of the vagaries of love and of wo/men. These poems are bright, biting, clever & exceedingly brittle.
