What People are saying about this

D. A. Powell
"Like the image of butterflies in Satyajit Ray's Distant Thunder, such grief in such abundance; such beauty in destruction. An elegiac poet of the highest order, Kevin Prufer draws the parallel between our own failures and the collapse of ancient empires in graceful eloquent lines. Here, too, the empire fails, falls: 'my empire, like a blood drop into the grass.' If any record of humanity survives our present disastrous course, let these memorable poems be among those artifacts."
