"Mice run through their vision.
Mice run through the plot.
O la la
is a lot..."
I was myself.
"Puppet X is a stunningly powerful, single long poem ... a perfect match in the poem between form and content -- the isolation of particular words and images, the broken quality of the poem as it unfolds on the page, matches well the listless, isolated lives he portrays; and yet even such a life deserves its epic -- even the dead have their songs. Puppet X is a book that opens areas painful to face; yet it also has its smothered laughter, jokes in the face of death. Clearly, a fine book."
PoetryFlash Review of 2nd Edition
"This is a major work, a sustained long poem in 26 sections that has great power of voice and personna. This is one to get, even if you have the rather cramped and crudely produced first edition, as I do - a big poem needs space to crawl around in!"
- Jon Ford, PoetryFlash
