Michael Kadela‘s poems explore love, obsession, heartbreak, and family, all guided by the influence of ee cummings and John Berryman. A unique, Chicago poet who found a voice at the Green Mill Uptown Slam, and who write the definite book on love, in all of her shades.
Each poem within is a spectacular silhouette of romance. Or better–these poems are like cubist paintings: The jagged juxtaposition of symbols, meticulously brushed meter, and tough texture of language blur conventional meaning as they sharpen our focus on the beautiful and the sublime.—George David Miller, author of Children of Kosen-Rufu
