Tackle attracts us into obvious and invisible architectures, into acts of intimate and public tackle. those poems are targeted, polyvocal, and sharply conscious of acts of illustration; they take individually their politics and within the procedure show anything in regards to the manner civic constructions inhabit the mind's eye. toxic vegetation, witches, anthems, bees—beneath their floor, we glimpse the fragility of our founding, republican aspirations and witness a disintegrating panorama artfully remodeled. If a poem can function a type of astrolabe, measuring distances either cosmic and speedy, temporal and actual, it does so by way of innovative, nonlinear ability. right here, prior and current interact in acts of mutual interrogation and critique, and inside this dynamic Willis’s poetry is immediately complexly authoritative and looking: “so starts our legislation.”
