  • "-- Stay, Illusion Eddying between the theater of the lavish and the enigmatic, between the gaudy and the unadorned, Brock-Broido's verse scours America for material to render unflinchingly the here and now. Grandeur devolves into a comic irony: "We have come to terms with our Self / Like a marmoset getting out of her Great Ape suit. "She dares the unexplained: "The wings were left ajar / At the altar where I've knelt all night, trembling, leaning, rough / As sugar raw, and sweet. "Each poem is a rebellious chain of words: "Be good, they said, and so too I was / Good until I was not. "Strange narratives, interior and exterior, make a world that is foreign and yet our own; like Dickinson, Brock-Broido constructs a spider-sibling, commanding the "silk spool of the recluse as she confects her eventual mythomania. "And why create the web? Because: "If it is written down, you can't rescind it. "From the Hardcover edition."@en
