Michael Mirolla's poetic world is one where a mirror " or any simple reflective item " is tilted ever so slightly, providing an opening to places we'd never imagined existed. (One of them is his own birth, from the inside, looking reluctantly out.) The poet is a metaphysical detective, finding the cracks and gashes that open into other worlds. Uncomfortable in the here and now, he'd rather spend time in the past/future, or on the edge of that mirror. Luckily for us, shaped by his reflective, polished imagery, all those worlds are fascinating places to visit, doing a brief meet-and-greet with his myriad ghosts. -- Lindsay Brown
time is ... an old salmon fighting/ the dotage of tides and moon-fickle waters/ time is ... the hermaphrodite's corpse/ never desecrated by fables/ of eternity in damp museums
