As is usually the case w/ poetry bks, I refrain from giving this a rating. Earl intros this by writing:

"a response to The Sad Phoenician by Robert Kroetsch, Completed Field Notes, The University of Alberta Press, 2000

"italicized phrases are taken directly from the above long poem, which i loved and the rest is written in the spirit of the poem in the voice of a woman who developed a thing for adverbs"

I'm not familiar w/ the Kroetsch poem but it appears that he writes about women - Earl writes
