Poetry. California Interest. ""Kit Robinson, always an observer of thoughts (not their manager), an instrumentalist of say-abilities (not the guarantor of their authenticity), has masterfully minted another fresh collection of poetry. Dedicated admirers, as well as those new to his artistry, will delight in engaging works that are clear of ideological pre-saturation. What we get here is a crisp cool California sober morning whereby the midday matrices of social conditioning become momentarily audible, susceptible to flow, thus transposable towards freedoms as yet undiscovered. Mist cleared by steady sunlight. What follows, follows."—Rodrigo Toscano
