From "Brown is the flat":
Brown is the flat gestation of a maze, grass-grown remembrance of a second look the field holds open like a nascent book in which the wind has written, Sudden strays, sudden numbers beat-the roots of days branched intangibles a stupor took and slept and stroked and scattered in a shook haze of wakenings, refracting rays outleaping their seasons, daughters of a glance ago-ahead, a retrograde advance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nomina (American Poets Continuum)?
The sonnet, through history, comes together again! Apr 28, 2008
Karen Volkman's third book of poetry affirms that she continues to be one of the most pressing & talented poets we have. This book is a searing song-- no syllable ever misses a millimeter. Here should leave a mark. Volkman's highly musical words are like Milton dipped Petrarch's mood in a patient etherized upon a table with a rinse of Dante's terza rima. Sexy. The flow of sonnets is uninterrupted ever. The unbroken, pellucid sonnet sequence assembled here is a read for the ear.
