From the Cover

Brimming with imagination and melody. A spooky deep -dive through the intersections of myth, spirituality, and Americana.

Deb Jannerson

Author of Thanks for Nothing

The mesmerizing wonder captured in Tolentino's poems evokes both confrontation and longing. Through the incredible, he pulls out some of the rawest emotions of human existance: awe, isolation, ache.

Do Nguyen Mai

Author of Ghosts Still Walking

[His] poems reach across time and space, Biblical in scope, longing, and wonder. These poems ask us to consider how we map a way back to each other and to the unknown.

Ruth Awad

Author of Set to Music a Wildfire
