...in a hazy, lazy sort of way, Tess Kincaid's poems provide a sense of remembrance, a tantalizing wisp of recollection, an easy intimacy. Like a cold beer on a summer afternoon, her poems go down easy.
Poetry allows us - we human beings - to feel our emotions. Kincaid's poetry goes one step further. Her words allow us the luxury of emotional commitments to people and to objects. But emotional commitment implies familiarity. And familiarity connotes patina.
Radic is the author of A Priest in Hell: Gangs, Murders and Snitching in a California Jail, and Gone to Hell: True Crimes of America's Clergy. He is currently working on his next non-fiction book, Killing God's Enemies.
