Editorial Reviews

Goodreads.com - Jeremiah Walton
4 stars Overall, a nicely written collection of poems. There is both rhyming poetry and free verse scattered through out the collection, and both build the collection nicely.
Beneath Constellations and Middle Aged Men On Ayahuasca are two poems that stood out from the rest.
