Default Mike Juster on 'Rattle' today

For his poem "Heirloom."

I find the poem impressive in being able to find a simple yet convincing objective correlative and, also, in the way Mike is able to use tet couplets for something other than humor.

Hey, this is attractive and great. Congratulations!

P.S. Oh, after Andrew’s remark, not that I was ever under any doubt that tet couplets could avail something more than humor, but it is true indeed that HEIRLOOM shines as an impressive specimen.
