The Brokenness Sonnets I–III

Mal McKimmie’s [poems] knock the breath out of you…They are powerful works full of strange imagery and unusual juxtapositons…The Tao of Smoking points to McKimmie’s great skill in forging fresh meanings from his realignment of cliches and everyday sayings. McKimmie is insider and outsider, the watcher and the watched, with an uncanny ability to make the unworkable work.
