"Incorporating the density of Spanish surrealism and a sprawling Whitmanesque line, this amazing first book finds Rotando engaged in a poetic biathlon which draws equally from maximal and minimal traditions. There are tight, economical poems, free verse forms derived from the sonnet, poems leaping about the page, but my favorites are the wonderful prose poems tumbling over and under themselves toward gnomish statements that feel both didactic and self-parodying." --Tim Peterson, from the Foreword

Review: The Comeback s Exoskeleton: Poems

User Review  - Zohra - Goodreads

Matthew Rotando writes poetry that you need to gargle with each morning so your mouth can lose that "banal" feeling. His is surreal poetry that comes over for tea and sleeps in your ribs. Must Read! And a small beautiful press published it! Read full review
