What is a poem? Figment suggests myriad possible answers: a post-confession, a remnant lyric, an unerringly wistful invention. Rebecca Wolff makes use of every tool at her disposal to create charming, discomfiting poems, spiked with "shrewd summings-up" and "nervy, controlled lyric bursts" (Maureen N. McLane, Chicago Tribune).
