"In this lucid collection, Kim Jensen moves between intimate address and an engagement with the world, connecting perception with perception in ways that are subtle and distinct. Jensen’s deftness in creating her own ‘poetic logic’ offers many pleasing jolts of surprise in a conceptual project that is original and compelling."—Elizabeth Robinson, author of The Orphan and Its Relations

"Like the medieval women writers who included passages from other women authors in their own works, Jensen’s homage results in poetry as a form of hospitality, a way of being truly open to the world. ‘Ordinary speech seems like a sin to me,’ writes Jensen, so she gifts us with this miraculous celebration of all that is both spiritual and worldly."—Tina Darragh, author of A(Gain)2St the Odds
