~~~~~ "Ed meek digs underneath the
broad lawns and narrow minds
of the suburbs to unearth a deeper and at times darker,
truth about ourselves and our lives."

"Ed Meek's poetry has always impressed me. In these recent
poems, Meek is a master of his craft. His poems are
brilliant, fresh, and full of subtle surprises. That this new
volume of poetry has come out is a blessing. I have no hesitation
in judging it one of the year's best."
~James Chichetto, editor, The Connecticut Poetry Review~~~~
"Poets are most important when politicians and advertisers
are most energetically and dishonestly bending words
against meaning, trying to fool us and sell us rather than
delight us and shock us into recognition. The best poems are
the antidote to lies and fraud, and false advertising. Ed meek's
poems, apparently humble and unassuming but often
wonderfully surprising, show us what's real and true, whether
it's terrifying or funny as hell."
~Bill Littlefield, host of national public radio's "Only a Game."
