From Kirkus Reviews:

The author of the prose volume A Strangers Neighborhood (1997) collects his first volume of poems: a motley batch of mostly confessional and autobiographical verse, filled out with natural observations, and pieces that confirm this married white poets sensitivity toward women, blacks, and gays. Morrill (English, Univ. of Tampa) pops a few rhymes in his otherwise bland lines, with their conversational rhythms; and he visits a number of interesting places, including Mexico (where a street vendor guilt trips him), China (where hes grossed-out at an animals dressing), Poland (where, in 1989, the future is coming here again), and Spain (where hes robbed). Incidental and matter-of-fact, Morrills sentimental poems (Bejewelled and Five Privacies) celebrate intimacies with his wife. In a porno booth (Onus), he thinks of his gay brother and the good man he lives with, while a black boy he teaches swimming (Underprivileged) becomes his conscience somehow. Nightly Constitutional gently mocks the northern old folk who people Morrills Florida, and The Sanctuary Manager makes the case for preservation amid the rapid growth. Nothing distinguishes this debut volume of anecdotal verse from the heaps of similar, mostly inoffensive, books, with their commonplace observations on death, love, nature, and so on. -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP.
