Mary Hickman, _This Is the Homeland_

I HAVE ALREADY submitted a review of this to a (much) more distinguished website and have high hopes that the review will appear this summer, so rather than pre-empt myself, let me simply say here that the good folks at Ahsahta have done it again, and that Mary Hickman's first volume is one any reader with an interest in contemporary poetry should investigate. I fell hard for the first poem--a distillation of Ulysses--and the subsequent ones only confirmed my belief that the teens of the 21st century are a grand time to be a reader of poetry.
