I don't know about you, but I can count on one hand the collections of poetry that are entirely made of solid poems. (Not a single filler, lesser, or 'bridge' poem. These of course are limited to the collections I actually own.) The Orchard is one of those powerful collections. If you don't have it, I highly recommend it. I am wowed, truly, wowed. If I ever have the good fortune to meet B.P.K. I have already made a solemn promise to myself to keep my mouth shut. This will assure that I won't make a blathering-star-struck idiot out of myself.
