"Mizuno gives an intense account of manly desires. His stories are divided by beautiful fine-line images of lovers and touching poems with lines like, '... a cloud-like latte of tiny bubbles.' His voice reveals the ecstasy of a desire-filled teenager and the sensual expressions of Rumi. The book is positive and uplifting, and it is obvious to any reader that he adores and respects women. Bravo to Rick Mizuno for this ecstatic, sexy, sweet book." Marcielle Brandler, Educator/Producer and Author of The Breathing House: Imagist Poems - Pasadena, CA
