    1. What drew me into this collection was the very first, and very brief, poem entitled "Coma": What if I told you each time you whispered my name it felt like a door I could place a hand against, feel how warm it was, as if the world on the other side, yours, was the one on fire?I kept thinking about that poem for a day after I first read it. There are other gems in there, as well, but the quiet grace and longing of that first one was the height for me.

    2. I've heard Jon Pineda's name for two years now and never read his books. When I saw he was coming for our Lit Fest this year, I finally read one, and it was lovely. His poems are beautiful, and the quiet restraint of them was easy to roll with.
