Reviews

"There is a straightforwardness to Rafferty's narrative prose poems that is quite appealing. Existing somewhere between poetry and the very short story, the pieces in The Smoke of Horses are short and self-contained, composed as single-stanza meditations and observational poems on multiple aspects of the world as it is, as it might be, and even, possibly, as it should be." --Rob McLennan
"[Rafferty] always imagines interesting scenarios we can read ourselves into, un-self-indulgently saying something keen about our world in language 'sharp as broken vodka bottles.'" --Library Journal
