Winner of the 2013 Gival Press Poetry Award / "Whether he is speaking of (as) Wile E. Coyote metaphorically, or speaking as a man who jumped out of airplanes (not for fun) and fired and was fired upon, or when he is speaking his remarkable love poems, you know you are hearing (I'm purposefully using 'speaking' and 'hearing' instead of writing and reading) something authentic, and true."--Thomas Lux, author of God Particles and Split Horizon / "Bravo to this poet, who tells us so nonchalantly it is: 'God here. As in big G God. As in, listen up.' Listen up. Read this book."--Dorothea Lasky, author of ROME / "This book is nothing less than amazing!"--CAConrad, author of ECODEVIANCE
