“The soothing presentation of the vertical verses in Ron Scully’s still lifes slows the reader’s pace until they become a part of his quieted world. The altered perception in these meditations encourages re-reading. The result can be haunting, as with 'parents photograph / in an oval frame / no way out' and magical, as with time that hydroplanes or a semicolon that can fly. The visual texture of Phil Openshaw’s photographs provides a beautiful and grounding complement to the wonder-filled poems.”
— Kat Lehmann, Co-Founder/Co-Editor of Whiptail: Journal of the Single Line Poem
