Jury Citation

"Something both hip and ancient is given full rein in these poems: hard limits slurping in the sun, Aristotle and police reports, electric fences and pick-up lines, subway riders have donkey heads. These alternating voices speak without fluff. A washed-out sardonic tone delivers a sure push that is humane and celebratory."
