Five stars for telling the truth, minus one for making it so sad and lonely.

Matthew Dickman amazes me. I was first introduced to his poetry while watching the live stream from 2010's Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival. The poem "V" completely grabbed me. I didn't know that poem was in this book when I purchased at the Festival, but was very happy to find that it is. Even more so, I am happy that ALL of the poems in here are just as gut-punching and dazzling as my first taste. More, please.

I really loved almost every poem in this book. Some of them I will probably read over and over again. Some of them made me uncomfortable, but that's not a bad thing. It's powerful. It was slow to read because after every poem I wanted to stop and think. Dickman captures so many truths and situations in such concise and excellent packages, and they are all a pleasure to read.
