POETRY REVIEWS



Here's my review of Kendra DeColo's poetry collection, THIEVES IN THE AFTERLIFE, featured in the current issue of Cider Press Review: http://ciderpressreview.com/reviews/the-numinous-nighscapes-of-kendra-decolo/#.V-XUuiMrKRt

Another sensatioal collection of poetry is Cynthia Atkins's IN THE EVENT OF FULL DISCLOSURE. Here is my review of that in Cleaver Magazine:
http://www.cleavermagazine.com/?s=arya+f+jenkins&x=4&y=12

"In this poor body, composed of 100 bones and nine openings, is something called spirit, a flimsy curtain swept this way and that by the slightest breeze. It is spirit, such as it is, which led me to poetry, at first little more than a pastime, then the full business of my life. There have been times when my spirit, so dejected, almost gave up the quest, other times when it was proud, triumphant. So it has been from the very start, never finding peace with itself, always doubting the worth of what it makes."  - Matsuo Basho

"Great poetry is always written by somebody straining to go beyond what he can do." - Stephen Spender
