"He did a better job of holding up the mirror of art to the '60s and '70s than any of our official literary poets." - Ted Kooser, US Poet Laureate
"He just has a unique ability to haiku it - it's deceptively insightful. It's at once playing on words and imagery, but expressing something deeper in such a succinct way, in such an exceptional way." Bonnie Raitt
*The Second Edition of Beyond Words was printed right here in the USA!
