"I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This book was a solid 3.5 stars for me. The wording was dark and foreboding which worked well with the free verse style that was used. Some parts of the poems seemed that they could have been stand alone an..." Read more of this review »

“He remembers a verse from the mystic poet, Rumi, Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
J.J. Brown, American Dream

“Mother took the pie out of the oven and it hissed fragrant apple, maple, cinnamon steam through the knife cuts in the top crust. She was making her world beautiful. She was making her world delicious. It could be done, and if anyone could do it, she could.”
J.J. Brown, Death and the Dream

“He remembers what the spiritual visionary, Wallace Black Elk, a Lakota said – man's scratching of the earth causes diseases like cancer. He meant the mining and drilling for coal, gas, oil, uranium. The scratching brings up the things deep in the earth that should have stayed down there.”
J.J. Brown, Brindle 24
