What are others saying?
"William G. Davies Jr. gives us small, concise, clear minded poems that shine and sing with clarity. "Evening settles like a soft comb through mahogany hair..." We enter each poem as an intimate guest, welcomed like, "the clatter of supper dishes stacked one on top of the other, still warm." The reader will come away with this sense of being there and being loved through all the different life experiences. Well worth the read."
Irene Koronas, Poetry Editor, Wilderness House Literary Review
"A collection of short, sharp jabs at the world, each poem a sliver of wisdom distilled, arresting as a face suddenly appearing in a dusty window."
Justin Lowe, Bluepepper
