Reviews

"Sonically powerful and careful in their word choice, these poems create a musical texture throughout. . . . Bolina's poems are acute, playful works that precisely capture the surreality of our current political moment."--Publishers Weekly

"Bolina writes socially aware poems mixing aesthetics with politics in emotionally charged language. It is poetry of bridging, connecting, and seeing to retain clarity and evoke awakening. . . . These attentive and subtle poems engage language expressively to address pressing realities, brilliantly demonstrating that poetry is action. Recommended for all poetry readers."

--Library Journal
"His speakers shifts from witness to outsider to stealth transgressor, while his poems move quietly--measured and musical--with rhythms so deft the criticisms and wit unfold unexpectedly. Through his deliberate and attentive forms, he echoes the strategic footwork immigrants and POC master to navigate and survive the United States . . . . His representations of this nation are vivid, chilling and accurate--balanced but made all the more real by the humor."--The Arkansas International
"Cynical, impassioned, and careening into furious flights of fact and fancy, Bolina's third collection is animated by a vision of a trainwrecked America. . . . And yet, with a finally tuned ear for the music of our Internet Age language, Bolina manages to make it all sort of fun, and even funny, in a schadenfreude kind of way."--WBUR News
