"The only person more dangerous than a dark-hearted man is a dark-hearted man on a sunny day." - Melissa Broder
"These poems go one word, one greeting, one feeling to the next. They were written particularly for all of us. They call us to action - to poems of our own and more importantly to HUMAN BEING yesterday, tomorrow, and right now - however difficult it may be, whatever the cost, with joy at the prospect of making a connection." - Matt Hart
from Publishers Weekly:
"In his fifth collection, Pritts strives for a poetry of urgency-"I know there's something/ I want desperately/ to say/ so I'm saying it"- his poems hint at what's at stake when Pritts assembles them into the erratic and formless lines that propel the collection, recalling the rapid-fire lines of Ted Berrigan. In these moments, the poems, having sloughed off their linguistic winks and nods, arrive at a place of vulnerability and sincerity."

About the Author
He is the author of eight books of poetry, including Revenant Tracer, which won the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award and will be published in the fall of 2017.
His most recent collection is Post Human (2016) which Publishers Weekly says "leads readers through a poetic dystopia that reveals the fragility of the human relationship with technology. Weaving his poems together as a meditative critique of technology and its numbing effect on the everyday, Pritts asks readers to imagine other possibilities amid 'this daily flood/ of ephemera, this electronic life.'"
