About the collection

"In this fleeting world of joy and sorrow, these startlingly lovely poems by Andrea Potos are salutary, like taking a quick, deep, clarifying breath. If only one could ever have by one’s side such a poet—a wise poet who, despite the darkest odds, reminds us to never even consider choosing anything other than hope. This is a summer book to keep in one’s proverbial winter coat."  --Richard Jones, Editor of Poetry East
