"Smart-mouthed poems, these: tangy, flip, compact in their casual sass. Hamon zings back at us the little words and phrases we throw away, her ear acute for the edges of our sloppy talk. Snap out of it, oh come off it, go on, these poems say with a lush precision. Her voice is also aimed inward at times, cautious and sensuous: exuberance brooding. "
— Griffin Prize nominated poet Phil Hall.
