Praise for R.M. Vaughan’s poetry:
“... an unusual smorgasbord exposing passionate emotional and physical interactions ... If you love poetry, try it, but throw away the blindfolds you have used to guide you through the last millenium of ‘real’ poetry”
“[Vaughan’s] poems are like flares of language . . . they erupt in jagged strokes . . . sinewy and reflexive. [The poems have] a good economy and hardness.”
The James White Review
