Not one, but two reveiws for Mortal appear in a recent issue of Galatea Resurects.
Ernesto Priego says, "The poems in Mortal grow in the reader like teeth, they break the skin, grow inwards before finally seeking an exit out of the body, through the mouth, to become expression, to grind and bite in survival and in love, in sex and in everything which is pleasurable.

Jeannine Hall Gailey says, "Alongside poems of mothers giving birth, a daughter struggling to come to terms with her mother’s breast cancer, and the fragile lives of flowers and insects, these mythological poems evoke a mournful and timeless struggle with mortality."

Flim Forum Press is a new press interested in poetry that postulates then questions the idea of the poem as experiment, poetry that builds and develops (forms) original logics/grammars, poetry that dissolves to redefine the lines between sense and nonsense, process and product, sight, sound, and semantic.
