About Bray:

"Just as other noise-making animals do, by our sounds we let one another know we're alive. Poetry arises from this wild cacophony of spirit., will, desire and love. Paul Gibbons exacts from our language sayings heretofore unsaid; his observations are acutely realized in sonic realms and sensible logics. We're lucky to have a new voice bringing us news we need."
—Dara Wier

"Here is a book full of antic grace and switch-back, track-switching trains of thought. Here is a maze with a mule finding its way. To beauty and loss and loveliness we are carried safely through these poems. Gibbons' obsessive lyric is a pack animal and a hybrid thing. "Bray" announces a wild talent. Here is a book with wings."
—Steve Scafidi
