A priceless collection, rich with images of nature and how our senses respond to nature. I read and heard a wise and friendly voice lead me into my own sense of wonder. These poems are magical in their incantation, as poetry should be.
– Rudolfo Anaya, author of Bless Me, Ultima
Dameron has a talent for the memorable line, the brilliant image. Another poet might be content merely to display these gifts, but Dameron uses them as diamond-hard cutting tools, and his willingness to excavate beneath his own virtuoso surfaces marks him as an artist of real conviction.
– Stephen Harrigan, author of The Gates of the Alamo
Dameron’s poetry is original, dark, lustrous, truthful, and compelling. His language is straight and unapologetic. He has a way of making the reader of his poetry feel moved and challenged – and entertained.
– John Garmon, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review
These poems provide us with a sense that not only is life sometimes magical, but that sometimes we are magicians. – Small Press Review
