What People are Saying About This

The Associated Press
“Skoyles projects a sharp sense of place (Queens, NY) and time (now), in an original voice.”
“In short lyrics that waste not a word, Skoyles reflects on death, guilt, religion, and other central topics, with metaphors as unusual as they are utterly right.”
American Book Review
“. . . Poems written with a receptive ear for music, a visceral sense of rhythm, and a penetrating vision through the ordinary . . .”
