Handle attracts us into seen and invisible architectures, into acts of intimate and public deal with. those poems are centred, polyvocal, and sharply conscious of acts of illustration; they take in my opinion their politics and within the approach exhibit whatever concerning the means civic buildings inhabit the mind's eye. toxic vegetation, witches, anthems, bees—beneath their floor, we glimpse the fragility of our founding, republican aspirations and witness a disintegrating panorama artfully reworked. If a poem can function one of those astrolabe, measuring distances either cosmic and quick, temporal and actual, it does so via creative, nonlinear potential. the following, earlier and current have interaction in acts of mutual interrogation and critique, and inside of this dynamic Willis’s poetry is immediately complexly authoritative and looking out: “so starts off our legislation.”
