Kristi Yamaguchi, Michael Jordan and Me

I am extremely grateful to Heidi Blakeslee and GAS: Poetry, Art & Music for such a kind and generous review of my book Rattle and Numb: Selected and New Poems, 1992-2019. "The manic exuberance of pure genius"? Comparisons to two of the greatest athletes of my lifetime? I feel a bit speechless and undeserving, but nonetheless delighted.
