So much of what I love about poetry lies in the vast possibilities of voice, the spectacular range of idiosyncratic flavors that can be embedded in a particular human voice reporting from the field. One beautiful axis of voice is the one that runs between vulnerability and detachment, between ‘It hurts to be alive’ and ‘I can see a million miles from here.’ A good poetic voice can do both at once.
