Of all the interesting poetry coming out of Philadelphia, it is Debrah Morkun's that I most seek out "to understand what words have to do with hours, & how/to deal with philosophy." Her material is fantastically rangy and mysteriously hearty, because she knows it's not "as though our tongues could sit still like curved bells--"
— Elizabeth Treadwell
