Barbara Carlson, Once in Every Language

"There is a beneficent knowingness in Barbara Carlson’s new book, and by ‘knowingness’ I mean an absolute, absolving take on what most makes us human-- our hunger for a home that doesn’t exist but that we can still hear calling to us, more real than any mere reality.  These aching, beautiful, elegiac poems move me over and over with their wonder at all this.  They do not wish to be free of any of it.

Ezra Dan Feldman, Habitat of Stones

"Exposing patriarchal and capitalistic practices that often cripple society, Ezra Dan Feldman’s Habitat of Stones reveals the symptoms of living in a post-industrial and illusional, high-tech world: 'He’s taken the world for a machine, a baby for a doll, a gun for a candy bar, which he offered to everyone.

Anna M. Warrock, From the Other Room

"Anna M. Warrock paints in subtle color the varying shades of loss, with white snows that 'fall dark against the sky,' red seeds, lilac wind, the silver quality of the moon and of glass.  A remarkable coolness pervades the poems, in content and sensitive attention to form—a calm necessary to the revelation of truth surrounding death within the confines of a family.
