    I have finally read all your poems and I am quite pleased with what I have consumed. You have a stark, economical style that still is full of beauty, non-normal words, and striking images. My two favorites are Anjengo and Leaving Bath. There is a pleasant confidence in your work, which nicely walks the line between saying too much and not enough.

Leaving Bath

It takes a hold on you
A shackle that will leave only with life itself
The heartfelt longings of remembered evenings
Dawn in strange places
Unmade beds and abandoned dresses
Looking out of new windows
Unchanging in every town
Endless tiled roofs And not a human in sight
Look down on snow-laden footpaths
