For All These Wretched, Beautiful, & Insignificant Things So Uselessly & Carelessly Destroyed...
poems by Hosho McCreesh
"It is seldom that a book of poetry comes around that can change the way we view the world. Picking up a copy of this book just might make a difference. The only fault I can find with this book is that there is not enough of it."
Outsider Writers Collective
"Despite the poetic, long-winded, stalwart titles, the poems themselves are meticulously simple, a paradoxical straight-forward tone lingering among heightened intensity; well-chosen to be small, well-placed to be exact, well-read to become huge. ... The poems are personal, yet universal, which is maybe the hardest challenge of writing poetry, and one that McCreesh masters with the ease of the best of them."
"It is choked with worry & anger, panic & disgust, all in the most uncommon and beautiful ways."
J . A. Tyler
