The first of these poems imagines their ideal reader as a lover, who purrs, "I'm going to run my fingers/along your lines.//Yes, I'm going to move my lips.//.I'm going to read you/like you've never been read before." The last poem sees the "intense play" of dolphins that are "harnessed weapons." Playfulness and intensity are the hallmarks of the poems in between. Serious fun: wit (sometimes caustic), wordplay, rhyme, even a sonnet or two, in the service of grief, anger, envy, passion, The first of these poems imagines their ideal reader as a lover, who purrs, "I'm going to run my fingers/along your lines.//Yes, I'm going to move my lips.//.I'm going to read you/like you've never been read before."
