Poems [that] are savage yet vulnerable, [with] breathtaking twists of language: talons in the earth and wings soaring in the sky. Transcendent imagery, deep-diving beneath the pelt of women to the beating heart, and the fiery brain. I was spellbound. David Henry Sterry
Lovely imagery, driven by real passion. Francesca Lia Block
