  • Lush, surreal, cinematic, and imagistically precise, Geoffrey Nutter paints the world into his fifth collection of poems. His poems display a consciousness in awe of all matter, be it organic, mechanical, industrial, ornithological, or sartorial. Iridescent and sparkling, his poems are ornate wonders of language, each their own contained ecosystem and civilization.

  • Though its tone is almost always calmly descriptive, whatever it describes is always somehow something else and not itself.
    Barry Schwabsky, Hyperallergic

    These poems are the multi-angled jewels whose light is derived from the fragments Nutter calls out directly.
    Greg Bem, Yellow Rabbits
