I am rocked. This is so beautifully executed and harrowing. Gorgeous. Sad. Art.

Wonderful narrative poem: well set up, well sustained. This is my favorite actual narrative poem of the year. Bravo y ole'.

Love the title, love the lyricism, love the South depicted by one who returns to it. Really well done, Matthew.


Heartbreaking, tender, and just beautiful. I so enjoyed this read.
