"Healey's work demands that we betray our allegiance to poetry schools and simply appreciate his rich imagination."Bloomsbury Review Fluid, lively, and referential, 10 Mississippi samples language from many cultural tributaries, performing sequels of celebrated twentieth-century poems, riffing on advertising slogans, tongue twisters, formulaic news reports, and everyone's favorite twenty-six-letter sentence, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." Like the proverbial river that is never the same twice, Steve Healey's poems channel the constant transformation of the modern world and embrace the human drama in a way that makes them a joy to read and revisit.
