REVIEWS

This poem is full of raw things, of ragged things, of the edges and shock of truth. How life includes death and wellness and illness and passion and hunger, all can coexist. There is a kind of Tao present in its telling, in its turning twist of lines and unexpected images.

TOE GOOD POETRY, on ROOT SOUP

...Imagery of childbirth and weather has been necessarily mutated into a language of survival, set within a circular narrative that approaches the precipice of hopelessness. How does language bleed like this? How do we form these poems that are both the blade of the knife and the handle? I don’t know, but poems like this are continued evidence of poetry’s mysterious and transformational power.
