About Lit from Below:

"In these delightful foreshortened sonnets, Terence Winch makes poems that leak with lucent dreams, dissolving midsentence into reversals, somersaults, and whimsy: counterfactuals that are as solid as the band that is your mind playing favorite songs in an old movie. “The crowd exploded. The room cheered.” And now back to the poems, already in progress ..."
—Charles Bernstein
