Linda Ravenswood's magnificent [collection] a poem is a house is a work of address. It speaks to complex figures dwelling in the inscape and the outscape of the text. It acknowledges its imagination. The speaker and, perhaps, the writer and/or the reader are actively involved ... floating, dissolving, life-making, jagged, transparent, transformative ... These are some of the existential conditions that the work carries, [in] glaciers of text, broken into bodies of different shapes, densities, colors, rhythms, destinations, desires.

?Juan Felipé Herrera, U.S. Poet Laureate (2015-2017) and author of
