My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Poems about prayer - or the wish for prayer - interrupt and compliment parenthood and livelihood in Fountain's second collection. She deftly mixes the grounding of the domestic with the optimism of religion. I'm a big fan of the titular short poem, Instant Winner.
This is a faster read than her first book, Burn Lake, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Each of her books ends too soon, leaving me selfishly wanting more.
