Item description for Quaker Guns by Caroline Knox...

With the adventurousness of Ashbery and the gregariousness of Billy Collins, no one's bag of tricks is as bottomless as Caroline Knox's.

They're Quaker guns, a creative ruse, the kind you couldn't and wouldn't
fire: they're flotsam, jetsam, or any old trees, ships' logs.
They're broken masts. They're the Friends of the Friends.

Caroline Knox is the winner of the 2005 Maurice English Award and the author of six collections of poetry. Her poems have appeared in The Times Literary Supplement, The Paris Review, and elsewhere.
