Poetry. "Mike Young's poetry is an absolute stunner. WE ARE ALL GOOD IF THEY TRY HARD ENOUGH streams one intricate, scenery chewing, note perfect, balletic, swervy, mind blowing composition after another. These may be nothing but great poems, but I can't think of a paragraph anywhere that can match them for style or cover their emotional distance"—Dennis Cooper.
