George Bishop’s poems in A Little Like You explore the “opacity of our private mirrors” and find in those impenetrable reflections fresh expression of familiar interior landscapes. Even as the poems remind us of the price we pay for our blindness, they also serve as mirrors revealing our need for meaningful connection with others as well as ourselves. Like a heartbroken song reverberating against the walls of an ancient cave, these poems echo a full-throated truth.
~Amy Riddell, author of Bullets in the Jewelry Box
“Stripping desire from desire,” George Bishop’s poems peer through window frames, into mirrors to come to terms with the godless prophet of himself. The setting is both external and internal. With stunning imagery, the poet evokes scenes of coastal living where even dreams are subject to rip tides. Reflecting on his past, his present, Bishop “testifies against himself” in phrasing so honest and beautiful darkness becomes light.
~Jane Ellen Glasser
These fine poems that show up from "the other side" are quiet as the ripple in a mirror when you turn away from it, then glance back to make sure what you fear or long for isn't there.
