“…grabs and holds you…. loaded with the subtleties and nuances that are the measure of great poetry.”
–Ray DiZazzo, author of Simian Bridge and The Water Bulls
“Bonemeal is a masterful display of imagery. This is not a must-read; it’s a must-experience. This is poetry in high-definition.”
–Brian Bowers, author of Shadows Chasing Light
Bones of the dead are ground into nutritious meal that give rise to other lives. Through taut and muscular poetry, Bonemeal pulses this theme into the wreckage of Hurricane Katrina, the laundry workers of Mumbai, the BP oil waters in the Gulf of Mexico, the spoonmaker in Laos and the young Rwandan boy searching through dead bodies in the hopes that he’ll find his mother. This book isn’t so much a guide as a torch willing to light wherever the reader is willing to point it.
