About Bloom:

Simmons B. Buntin writes with scrupulous attention to the agency of love in a wounded and venomous world. Whether he considers Hiroshima or dead albatrosses, the small marvels of finches or ladybugs, or his daughter's accidental plunge through a plate glass window, his poems celebrate nature, family, and the healing power of beauty.
