From the stunning opening poem, "Recent developments in Gay America," [this book] is a cathartic journey for poet and reader, leavened with touches of sly humor. Ken Pobo is unsparing, including his indictment of the church for its cruelty towards and crusade against homosexuals. — Karla Linn Merrifield, author of My Body the Guitar.
Light runs through this powerful, exciting, gorgeous collection of poems [winner of the 2021 Stonewall Chapbook competition]: sunlight, candlelight, the light of fire and morning and moon. . . ." — Janine Urell, author of the comics of alison bechdel
Kenneth Pobo is the author of twenty-one chapbooks and nine full length collections. His work has appeared in North Dakota Quarterly, Nimrod, Mudfish, Hawaii Review, and elsewhere.
