    Beautiful and honest little slices of life from a type of poet and perspective (rural queer) that don't always get the space they deserve. Harsh and lush as the Texas humidity.

    Welcome to Midland is a great collection. I'm happy to have found it somehow, it was a pleasure to read. The poems cover a wide range of topics - life, relationships, animals. The writing is good across them all. My favorites were - Permian Sea Dream In Which I Am Wile E. Coyote (an absolute stunner, read it a dozen times) Horned Toad Grey Fox Highly recommend collection of poems. Seek out good books & enjoy. ~ BJ Welcome to Midland is a great collection.

    A deeply emotional and somewhat sad collection of poems. It’s coming of age, queer; you could feel the weight these have on the author in each piece. The verse is insightful, yet straightforward. I found some pieces lacked more depth for me, but it was also hopeful despite the somber and sometimes dark tone. Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the arc!
