    Some that warmed my heart, others that gutted me, and all of which dazzled and delighted. One I’ll read again and again, probably this week.

    !!! half these poems are absolutely fantastic. the other half fall a little too far into the childish-whimsy aspect of ruefle’s tone.

    Really inconsequential and forgettable poetry, if one must call it poetry. Absolutely nothing of feeling here, just empty words explaining away what could have been shown, instead, distinctly. ...you sit quietly and in great silence, like a gnome on a stump, one of the older ones, smoking a pipe filled with bewilderment and regret... A disappointment for sure from one of our so-called anointed ones.

    Mary is delightful as always. She makes me curious about the mundane, and somehow excited by her weariness? I’m not sure I can describe it any other way. Lovers of her Trances of the Blast will enjoy this collection.

    Obsessed. Filled with the type of poems filled with the types of lines filled with the types of words that exist for these pages. These poems set me on fire!
