Lies I’ve Heard or Told

Lies I’ve Heard or Told is on the outside a small book, but on the inside it stretches
from Kansas to Scotland to Bosnia and back again. Poage is an acute observer
and an unusually cosmopolitan writer—he is the wise man to whom the whole
universe is his home city. His poems are nuanced and precise, at times funny, at
times heartbreaking—but true throughout. I suggest buying two copies of this
book because you are sure to tell someone else they have to read it and then to
press your own copy into their hands.”
– George Franklin, Travels of the Angel of Sorrow (Blue Cedar Press)
