Praise for this work:
“Since poets are by definition metaphysical detectives, this collection makes brilliant sense. The poets never flinch nor do they romanticize. Rather they write tersely and deftly of violence large and small, motives confused and clear, endings bloody and mundane. Collectively, they show poems are bullets of essence that can pierce some very dark shadows.”
—Baron Wormser, former Poet Laureate of Maine
