Michael Daley’s Born With is reviewed in the Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene

Dennis Daly reviews Michael Daley’s Born With in the online journal Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene.

The art of narrative indirection requires not only a studied callousness, but also an abundance of fervor and a willingness to change course on a dime. Many of Michael Daley’s poems initially spit mulled anger and resentment through and out of his earthy stanzas before metamorphosizing into the most hopefully dressed, delicate winged lyrics (or vise versa). Daley manages this by strategically interrupting his story-line or ending it abruptly, then dwelling on the word power that got him to that point.
