Design

Winner of the 2000 Colorado Prize for Poetry


"The poetry of Design arcs between radiant acts of attention wherin Keith displays a brilliant, phenomenological turnof mind, as well as a capacity to sustain a lyrical interrogation of perception, faith, form, the architecture of flight, the fragility of matter. The vision is fractal, the language painterly. There is little of the contemporary poetic vernacular here, but rather a transcription of mind, as is found in the journals of Hopkins and Dickinson. She is that interesting, and this is an exemplary debut."
—Carolyn Forché, author of The Angel of History and The Country Between Us
