This One Tree
Poetry. THIS ONE TREE is the winner of the 2005 New Issues Poetry Prize, judged by William Olsen. "No one is going to not-know what these poems intend, what they state, and why they exist. They have the rigor of Oppen and a serious eye-level attention to pieces and parts of the chosen subject that give them an analogical edge over pure description. They bring heart and soul back to the poet writing them." Fanny Howe"In THIS ONE TREE, I find what might very well be the salvation of our distracted, disbanded American soul: an imperative, unempirical Gaze. Peterson commends and then commands Vision in her every word, beginning with her first ones 'Be on the lookout.' And what I find most wonderful of all is that, here, Vision goes forward to atonement and a new name in 'sweet alyssum' for us all." Donald Revell"
