Hapax is ancient Greek for "once, once only, once and for all," and "onceness" pervades this book of poems. Employing sonnets, couplets, blank verse, haiku, Sapphics, even a sequence of limericks, the author displays a seemingly effortless mastery of form. She makes these diverse forms modes for expressing intelligent thought.
