"This is an honest and interesting collection from a man who knows his mind, and knows how to express it. I appreciated the gut honesty of author Bill Brashears. Via a wide range of emotions from rage to frustration to resignation, he deals effectively with love, betrayal, loss, and a multitude of other subjects. I found these poems to be well-constructed and insightful. Kudos to the author!"
