"This is so rare--to encounter poems written from a thinking-heart! There isn't a page in this book that isn't bracing; Steven Cramer is determined to discover what he didn't know before he started. Bracing in the way of crucial conversations when everything depends on not defending, not glancing away or distracting oneself. I felt implicated in every encounter--that's what these poems are--encounters with a reality that only the most rigorous poetry can approach. Uncompromising song."
