Reviews

The Only Worlds We Know is an "act of remembering like sharpening a blade until the blade is gone." Memory is shaped without resolution in these moving poems. They beautifully track what happens when unspeakable grief refuses to be silent. -Terrance Hayes
Michael Lee has found new ways to write about some of the crucial subjects--love and love lost, recovery and addiction, the bullet and the pill. No wonder he writes 'For my final wish, another/ final wish, ' wishing to keep writing poems forever." -Billy Collins
Worlds exists in the aftermath of grief, violence and addiction. These are not easy poems, and Lee offers no easy solutions . . . Yes, there's wreckage here, but also these words will carry you. This is a striking debut collection--a voice that feels urgent, honest, and earned." -Matthew Olzmann
