Reviews


"There's a reason why myths are passed down from generation to generation ... that myth-making voice is very much alive in Kocot's poems, employing clear, unadorned language." --David Peak, "The Rumpus"
..". this book is the logical and luminous next step in a career that has already produced some of the most challenging, daring and compassionate poems I've read." --Gabrielle Colvocoressi, "The Rumpus"
"Kocot's creativity engenders an excitement comparable to being twelve years old, exposed to good poetry or music or art for the first time, and knowing that, for better or worse, things have been bent." --Nick Sturm, "Coldfront Magazine"
"This collection makes for a quick read, but a number of the poems are worth revisiting in order to let their moments of beauty, or their moments of horror, sink in." --Gina Myers, "Open Pages"
