From A Reader:

“I was so enamoured with  your use of language – you have a natural storytelling gift! With that said, my favorite poems are “Smoke Taint,” “Shooting Haiku,” “Melt Up!,” and “Halcyon  Days in the Anthropocene”–all spoke to me. Finally, I loved the use of ideas from the “Professor and the Madman”! [Also,] physically, the book feels wonderful in my hands: the touch of the black velvet and the gorgeous marbled papers!”

-Nina Mazzo, miniature book collector and publisher
