A poet whose work ought to be more widely read is Tina Kelley. Her book The Gospel of Galore is smart, exuberant, witty, original: poems that utilize science, faith, and natural history as jumping off points for speculation and playful digression, but remain connected to everyday events and situations. I liken her to Pattiann Rogers and Molly Peacock, but her voice is her own. (Interesting to note that like David Tucker--the NJ Star Ledger editor whose first book is receiving so much notice--Ms. Kelley is a working journalist, who writes for the New York Times.) http://www.versedaily.org/abouttinakelleytgog.shtml
