"These spare and flint-edged poems are concerned with what makes us human, what essence might be visible in solitude or in love, in the torturer's cell or the hospice bed. We are 'surrounded, bound but/still seeing always a/certain opening over-/head' in which we might find 'stars & rims of sky' that are, if we're lucky, 'bright enough to navigate brutality.' That qualified but brave vision is at the heart of Rick Benjamin's engaged, humane work." -- Mark Doty
