New review at coldfront mag

Many thanks to John Deming of coldfront mag for this ultra-flattering and astute review of That Tiny Insane Voluptuousness. Great discussion of collaborative poetry and how the process can sometimes overshadow the product. (Not with us, of course!) Here's an excerpt:

Now go read the rest.
