There are a few standouts here; the opening poem by DJ Renegade is a marvel. For the most part, though, this is a collection of very young, promising poets, more a list of who to keep an eye on than a collection that's worth reading now.

ETA: three months later and this book hasn't left my bedside. I keep coming back & back to it, finding new wonders each time. I originally gave this 3 stars; I'm upping it to 5. Ignore what I said above, or maybe consider it only inasmuch as this: it may take a while to realize the utter brilliance & beauty here. ( )
