“Good’s poems cut straight to the bone, not with a machete or dull-edged sword, but with a scalpel and deft hand like only the best poets can do. These poems are alive with well-earned grit. Good reminds us: ‘You can’t / burn anything all the way, // it only turns to ash— / giving us grace / to let go of what’s gone.’ Every line is brimming with what it means to be alive in the grandest sense of the word. These poems say I lived through this, and you can too.”

—Travis Denton, author of When Pianos Fall From the Sky and My Stunt Double
