RaveThe Broadkill ReviewThe poems are replete with rundown towns, futures, people and relationships, and yet it’s an awe-inspiring collection that shows how a skilled hand can find light in the darkest things ... There’s a sense of earned grace to the language of these poems. Sometimes he pushes the boundaries with ornate statements ... Yet he’s never talking beyond the reader. In every moment where plain speech hits a transcendent pitch, the poetry makes room for the reader to walk alongside. It’s both a humble and confident ... beautiful language.
