Poetry. "With a sublime palette that ranges from Zen simplicity to elegant diction, Bradley Paul reveals the internal life of things. How refreshing to behold the beauty of THE OBVIOUS"--D.A. Powell. "In Bradley Paul's poems, the reader hears someone odd, unlikely, and, to a large extent, unknowable, speaking in reasoned tones about unreasonable things.Paul compels the reader to contemplate whether words lead one to knowing someone else or to recognizing futher mysteries"-John Yau.
