more about falling up

nibble has published a chapbook of new poetry by jeff fleming called Falling Up.  some folks were kind enough to write in with their comments, reactions, and thoughts:
 
It’s tight. concise. it’s NOT poetry. it’s a lyrical tale with poetic language, but a decidedly short story feel. I suppose it doesn’t really matter what the style is called as long as it’s called good (which it is).
 
I loved it.
 
I was very touched by the book. I loved the structure – one poem as an entire chapter highlighted the ability of poetry to act as a “condensation of language.” Cool.
 
What a nice surprise.
 
Thanks for ‘falling up’…chapter breaks very effective…the necessary ‘sigh’…the foreshadowing, ‘turn-to-come’…kind of ‘a clean well-lighted place’…

Glad to own it.
