The poems seem very well-'crafted' to me, I guess in the 'sense' that it seems like Jordan both cares about words a great deal and that he takes very good 'care' of them when he uses them in poems. 'Care' seems like an important word re: these poems, in a non-ironic way. To me they are very clear poems and/but are aware of the ways in which things in 'life' are not so clear, especially things in/things that have to do with thoughts. To me they are very precise poems in how they address those ways and those things.
''Photo Booth' Video Emotional Poem' felt especially 'astonishing' to me. I've had thoughts about it being 'one of the best poems I've ever read I'm pretty sure'. There are probably several reasons for my thinking/feeling like this about it but I'm not sure how to articulate them yet, or if I should (try to) articulate them, etc.
I look forward to reading this book again very much.
