People You May Know

With a lyrical precision that gleams in each finely tuned line, these poems spin and burst with a timeless beauty. Always open to possibility and with an eye that is as cinematic as it is microscopic, Robins builds radiant, multifaceted poems that despite the wounds of life, give in to wonder. 

-Ada Limón

Michael Robins’ gorgeous new book is filled with myriad objects and strange observations. They are pulsing in a gentle yet powerful cadence, all working an edge of circuitous narratives that start in one place and end up in a magical world. These wondrous poems are pure acts of the imagination and filled with love, wisdom, and joy.
