"In MOONLIGHTING AS AVALANCHE, Daniel Romo gives us prose poems as proverbs, filled with famine, faith, frailty, and failure, but also filled with hope, vulnerability, trust and healing. In a voice both wise and searching, Romo's poems function almost like prayers or incantations, 'an approaching whisper, a collection of last breaths holding up a life.' Like an avalanche, there is falling and breaking, but also moving away from the source of rupture and headlong toward a softer landing, a new beginning."—Donna Vorreyer
