Fire Poetry has just published an incredibly generous review of A Fire Without Light.
“In thinking forward, Demaree and his poems work toward survival. For all the anger and sadness that resonates through these fine prose poems, the speaker is not cosigned to doom or melodrama. At a time where very little seems to make sense, in this fiery and earnest collection, Demaree uses his poetic ear to craft protest meditations. Sometimes angry, hopeful, bewildered, and resolute, this collection of poems acts as an uprising of some collective unconscious, a reminder to navigate our complex feelings and relationships to America with power and honesty. ”
