One of Last Years P & W Breakout Writers

I was reading the Dec. 18th New Yorker and noted a poem by Dana Goodyear. I remembered the name as one of Poets & Writers Breakout Writers from 2005. I know at some point someone is going to say, well she's an editor with the New Yorker, so up front I'm going to say the poem titled Quail was worthy of publication none the less.

The work was extremely compact in language. The missing man formation was a good universal image and I enjoyed the read enough to want to read her poetry book titled Honey and Junk.
