Excellent! Great poem from a great book, which I reviewed online back in 2018. You can find the review here, if you're interested:

Excelent post! Thank you, Angela. And we appreciate the link Martin Stannard provided, connecting us to his review of Justin's book.

Thank you, Martin. Glad to have the link to the review.
Thank you, David. Glad you enjoyed.

Can't resist posting this excerpt from Martin Stannard's review:

Of late I have yearned and longed for a poet new to me to take my breath away. And I have been living with this air of longing and, as a result, also with an air of disappointment. And for a month or two I have had this book – well, PDF to be exact – sitting around waiting to be picked up and reviewed, and I usually like Hanging Loose books because it’s a New York press I know, and I know Bob Hershon who runs it with Mark Pawlak, and it’s almost always all good, then today I sat down and opened the book and it was “goodbye breath” –

Wow! I love this poem and these comments!
