    3. Noteworthy poems in this collection:p. 7: A Large, American Gallinaceous Bird (gorgeous, witty; Note to Howe: Write more like this!)p. 35: Your Luck is About to Change (an old favorite)p. 52: Found in The HorseShoe Trailer (a poem of want ads; quirky, delightful)At times reminiscent of Mary Oliver, Howe exhibits flashes of brilliance, notably in her more humorous poems.
