The things about Spencer's poems that I admire the most are that:
Gradually we stopped talking and she dimmed to a shadow in the mirror late at night, and now I seem to have gotten over her death, which must have happened so long ago that the sound of my heart is all that's left of her.
The computer flickers. If it all goes away I just wait for the next frame. If they want an answer they'll ask again, or they'll stop asking. The world will return. Light shines steadily through the open window.
At the end, the only sorrows are that this book did not include one of my favorite of her poems: "I Write From Tibet". And that she has not yet published her follow-up book — which hopefully will include "I Write From Tibet".
This is a very fine book and we urge our readers to obtain their own copy.
