Ascension
is as boldly redemptive as it is formally ambitious. In poems that witness and pray, Brownlee teaches us that salvation is found in geography and its ghosts--reminding us that elegy is rooted in both the physical body and the vicious grace of the soul as it ascends.
-TARFIA FAIZULLAH

Brownlee is that rare poet who refuses to hide behind the glitz of literary fashion and trendy opacity. His work says, with an unwavering lack of apology, "This is my America." This is a poetry of ardor, and I celebrate it.
-MIKE MCGRIFF

These are poems of place and identity with a voice that comes out of the landscape. I admire their rough American syntax, their Texas detail and country lyricism.  We can look forward to Brownlee's first full collection.
-JOSEPH MILLAR

Organ Solo with Oblivion and Gar

Skittish fish lay eggs
  in this shallow stone
   cleft of an algae chorus.  
    Turn my soul into song,
      if you can, River Lord.  
       Treat believing the same
        as each minnow slipping            
         coin-like into deep murk.
          Your spirit mimics me          
          unblinking, fishbone
          face framing brackish
         absence, saying, Kneel
        into this.  Lean low,
       sinner, & drink. Bitter
      infidel, swallow the black
     granite whole if you are not
    afraid of what comes after it:
   ___________. Live forever.
