Poetry. "Michael Heller has one of the most distinctive voices to be found in contemporary poetry. WORDFLOW: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS showcases a major talent that will engage the readers mind and imagination on every page. 'To the morning traceries are ascribed hope and promise of a day / whereby an intellection is erased from the ordinariness of truth. / The mind secures, in semblances, the yellowed clouds, thinner / and whiter toward the West, those legibilities consonant/with a self always imagined, always beyond reach. And so the sky / is sown with futurities, omniscient scatterings, thought's / anointments. We are the impossibles of these wants, unloosing / out grasp so that, briefly, the hope of love may leave a mark. / As in waking with her from sweetness, a memory of completeness / becomes an enabling myth, and one awaits the requisite fears / which fuel our constant devolutions, the gorgeous realm abiding.'"—Midwest Book Review
