Let the Bucket Down

Now I have to add that I've read much of vol 3 of Let the Bucket Down and damn, every writer in it is compelling, fine, worth reading. Suzanne Mercury's poems about trees, Audrey Mardavich's poems are so psychologically convincing I want to know if they're persona poems or not, Bridget Eileen so much her funky delightful self, Keith Jones' which I can't characterize right now but his strong sense of form mixed with deep feeling works so well, Amanda Cook is always down home & honest & believable--just read the damn thing.
