Read in September, 2009

I've read this book a few times before this. And always, I read that first poem, and I made it the location for every subsequent poem. I suppose it should be. This garden, these statues, are a locale. However, none of the poems have that life, and movement that "Black Swan" does. Granted, the poem is possibly one of my favorite poems, period. But on this read, I noticed that many of the images are dense, but not dynamic. They don't seem to live through the page, they suffice for well wrought objects.
