Powerful, lyrical, arresting... Osen's poems ...
22 July 2014 - Published on Amazon.com

Powerful, lyrical, arresting... Osen's poems are at once accessible and transcendent. His use of form is so deft that, when I read the first poem in this collection, I didn't even notice the meter/rhyme scheme until the very end; I was too captivated by the unfolding story and musical style. Then I went back and reread it, and the skillfulness blew me away. It is rare (and refreshing) to find a writer who combines old-school lyricism and poetic craftsmanship with the emotional candor and concrete style of modern literature.
