Now available from vanZeno Press!

Ferris Gilli Associate Editor, The Heron's Nest writes:

“The haiku in this collection draw me back again and again. Joshua Gage's images remain fresh, vibrant, and always accessible. His poems range from earthy to poignant to subtly humorous, with most as comfortable and inviting as a good friend's voice. Others are fearlessly edgy, yet irresistible. Fans will not be disappointed, and readers who have yet to experience this poet's work are in for a real treat. ”
