Cynthia Arrieu-King's The Small Anything City
"I admire Cindy Kings elegance. She has a forked tongue, but both sides speak so eloquently, and both contribute to the quiet beauty of her poems. She speaks with the off-handed lightness and omnivorousness of Frank OHara, and somehow, also, with the quiet precision of Elizabeth Bishop. A bomb went off. The ferry started to sink, she says; big things happen in these poems, and tiny things happen in these poems. The equanimity with which she wraps all of them up together in her voice is beautiful."
"In Cindy King's poems there's a surprise in every couple of lines, Things move fast, and a cool wittiness informs everythingcall it postmodern metaphysical. This is an auspicious first collection." Ed Ochester
