Verse Things Verse: What better poetry for the current economic period than Denise Duhamel's hymns to money, ATMs, her IRA 
 accounts, the Treasury, gambling...and Sean Penn?

Sample Lines: ''I still see the poet in you, Sean Penn/ You probably think fans like me are your penance...''

Bottom Line: Learn and have fun while you read: Using prose poems, 
sonnets, sestinas, and other forms in Ka-Ching!, Duhamel is a wily technician, a touching humanist, a poet 
 deserving stardom. A
