“Temporary Champions” is reviewed on Coldfront!

Chris Mink has reviewed “Temporary Champions” for Coldfront.

“To extract consolation from darkness is a formidable task, even more so when the only consolation is that we finally face our fate accompli. When a poem tells us “how a little light / can take / the narrows / & explode / to become / the whole story,” it means we’re still running to turn on that light, no matter the possible consequences. That’s what I find so fascinating about Temporary Champions: the beauty is rightfully reserved for the fighters, but the elegy is for us.”

The whole review can be read here.
