These poems are concerned with the balancing of darkness and light in our everyday lives, the search for an understanding of pain and sorrow, and the processing of other thoughts we’d usually avoid by filling our days with mindless distractions.
"There are reflective pieces, some of them imbued with a sadness that all of us can readily relate to, but in sharp contrast the humorous poems are truly hilarious. Henry has always had a great knack of wrong-footing the reader; he has a wonderful ability to make you laugh out loud, but he is equally capable of bringing a lump to your throat – sometimes within the same poem." - Marvin Cheeseman, poet
"Painfully funny ... tender and touching." - Judy Gordon, Write Out Loud
