"These are painful and beautiful poems, worn on the sleeve and inked with care and precision. Unwrap their clingfilm, they will speak to the sunshine of rain." - Tony Walsh AKA Longfella, poet & educator
"A celebration of the human existence in its smallest observations. Women in this collection have inner lives more vast and important than their outer appearance." - Anna Percy, poet & Stirred Feminist Collective
"From urban grits of scuffling cityscapes to fully-flown romances of human experience, Steve's poetry simply/complexly soars." - Gerry Potter, poet, playwright, director & actor
"He documents our times better than anyone, but what he actually does is to document life, existence and feeling, with intensity, insight, and flashes of panache." - Cathy Thomas-Bryant, Puppywolf
"Sensitive but secure in outlook, these poems reveal a mature yet subtle vibrancy. Their economy of scale disguises their scope and concision." - Robert Cochrane, The Bad Press
Includes a Foreword by Geneviève L. Walsh.
