Here’s a little sample:

“Paul Foster Johnson’s debut book of poetry, Refrains/Unworkings, reads like an accomplished symphonic cycle of musical threads that are sequenced to generate ghostly poetry framed within a narrative context.” Reading Refrains/Unworkings, we are reminded of how poetry and music must exist within space and time as they fight to rupture it.”

Be sure to visit the Rain Taxi site or your local bookstore and pick-up a copy!
