About There Are Things We Live Among:

"Every poem, so rich with music, imagination. This poet takes everyday objects and turns them into enigmas, mysteries and, at the same time, gets to the heart of what they really are. I wish I could write like this. I wish I could see like this. I do feel, after reading the book, that I have learned a new way of seeing."
—Mekeel McBride

"Patrick Moran has a gift for ventriloquism; mousetraps, combs, radiators, cobwebs, dust, and knots come alive here. This book made me feel how deeply mysterious each world is."
—Mary Szybist
