I'm moved and blessed to receive from g emil reutter a review of WITNESS IN THE CONVEX MIRROR. You can see entire review at North of Oxford; here's excerpt below:
The use of two of Ashbery’s lines to begin new poems is bold and courageous. Tabios has never been a poet to conform, she shatters the mirror. Its shards of images and words, both beautiful and harsh, of the comfortable and uncomfortable glitter like diamonds spilled out upon the floor.

Unfortunate typo in last excerpted poem. Last two lines should be:

read you, and you professed your entire life

that you are a poet. Damnation: I am a poet!
