Her poems—discontinuous, imagistic, chant-like, wide-ranging in their references, sonically dense—challenge more traditional ways of putting a poem together. She makes us sound old-fashioned, more, she makes us sound artificial, our tidy methodical artifacts simulacra of reality, instead of the postmodern reality caught and then broadcast like a radio signal from her poems.
