There is an emotional breadth and depth to Tim’s work that is palpable. A deep sense of abiding presence and immediacy felt in each poem; as if he’s sitting there with you, across some table in a comfortable, darkened café. Two friends, swapping stories. Time well spent. And his words: the kind of intimate and profound vignettes about what colors our thoughts, holds our spirits captive, ruminates in the deepest parts of our mind.
—Vincent Larson, author of Ashtapadi: Webs of Light.
Tim Tarkelly's poetry is another example that the best poetry right now is coming out of the midwest. 21st-century modernist truths for a second lost generation who long for the little moments of life so they can yearn for more.
-Daniel W. Wright, Author of Brian Epstein Died for You
