"Midas knew power first and grief thereafter. Shoaf knows everything she knows all at once, word by word, line by line, poem by poem. These sly poems are spare and ample, both. They're cool and passionate, frank and opaque, artful and true. They're not about what it means to be right--though they acknowledge and even embrace this fatal ambition—but about what it means to be us."
