New review of Shelly Taylor's Black-Eyed Heifer

Good news for the uninitiated: At Prick of the Spindle, Eric Weinstein reviews Shelly Taylor's Black-Eyed Heifer.

Says Weinstein, "Reminiscent of Tony Tost’s Invisible Bride, Taylor’s poems evoke the quotidian without becoming banal, carrying the reader through dreamlike forests and fields. . . .
