Note: I received this book for free in exchange for review. The author is a classmate of mine.

I came to this book, Debelis' first major collection, with enthusiasm. Already a fan of his spoken word poetry performances, I was intrigued to encounter Debelis' words on the page.

This collection is vibrant and varied, including poems inspired by his time as a hospital chaplain and chapters of his own life. I found that the author's free association style invited me to read closely and revisit poems to discover the many layers of meaning they contained. While not an easy read, the unsentimental compassion and raw emotion of his words drew me in and I look forward to hearing how the author's voice continues to develop in future publications.
