Insomnia Diary

PDF One of the best books of poetry I've read.Hicok can hit hard, but he doesn't lose himself in savagery—there's room in his attitude for sensitivity and bemusement.Often, when he does work with a bitter pen, he aims it at his own self, but even there he flavors his vinegar with compassion.Most importantly, Hicok maintains an openness to wonder and a respect for the profound that suffuses every line with a reverent hue.He is able to simultaneously mock and coddle, which is no small achievement.Plus, he does it with a wholly original voice, which leads to lines like (and this is an approximation, since I don't have a copy of the book on hand to refer to) "to huddle around the zirconium's small fire."Have you ever thought to describe a group admiring a wedding ring in that way?
