A Few Good Words. The Cincinnati Writers Project Anthology

  • Feedback on my work from an Amazon reviewer Julie G: “You may want to consider as you start to read, this book is a bit more edgy than one expects from an anthology of poets and writers. You may be surprised. It is a lot to plow through at one sitting, so I have been reading it bit by bit. I take it places. Right now I am haunted by a poem about a grandfather who shoots himself. The poet’s eye sees us as fishes, or birds, maybe. As if the air and the water were one in the same, clearly saying we cannot live one without the other, or find the answer as to how we can live after such a loss. Is the absent Father the answer? I am still reading.”
