This fourth volume of the Lost Horse Press New Poets / Short Books series offers three strong voices, each with a personal brand of courage. Their lives are as different from one another as can be, and their sensibilities are very much their own, yet in practicing the art of poetry they share something too mysterious and vital ever to be replaced by a new technology. That is because poetry is a primary and, one might argue, primal manifestation of the life force itself. All of our brilliant inventions notwithstanding, what life feels like remains inside us. Here are three poets, each of whose personal language is part of that richness we cannot do without. --Marvin Bell

User Review  - Kitty - Goodreads

Very cool book. Abby Murray rocks -- so many layers and imagination starts clicking like the violins making the bones dance in Rachmaninoff's variations of paganini == simple -- just hit the strings with the back of the bow... The other two poets didn't rock me so.. Read full review
