When a poet of extraordinary gifts makes a profound change, it is an event for the art itself.  "Blizzard" is such an event.              Louise Glück
Over the last 15 years ... Cole has invented and mastered his own version of the sonnet, a compact lyric utterance that drills down on a single experience, moment, or startled vision, and surprises with every line ... it's true poetry, the thing we mean by that word. —Craig Morgan Teicher, NPR
