This book-length poem delivered by the author is grounded by her experience working at the information desk at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It sprawls out from there to just about everything that has ever crossed the poet's mind. It includes a great deal of art, of course, and family life, and history, but any attempt to summarize it would be not much shorter than the full text. Schiff's voice is soft and controlled--at times, perhaps too controlled. That is not to say she's not passionate, but she measures out her passion carefully. Note also that the poem is very complex, and those new to poetry might benefit from reading along. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
