Review:

These are poems whose yearning for the beloved's body take them beyond the body. Like Jack Gilbert before him, Roxas-Chua reaches beyond the imagery and emotions we expect--creating his own universe, logic, and definitions of the beautiful. "When a poem / can't save you,/ you must drink / all of the winter / wine you've saved / in the basement, / and wait/ and wait / and wait...". This is a striking book of poetry that, while unable to save the beloved, makes several brave attempts at rescue anyway. --Dorianne Laux, Raleigh, NC

"Song is unrest" Hazel Hall's observation fits these lyrics of Sam Roderick Roxas- Chua. For unrest is both the motive for song and the tension within the finished poem. This poet explores identity as child, grown man, and citizen. His lyrics hold out to us disruption and discovery, balance and beauty. --Erik Muller, Editor and Publisher of Traprock Books

A consistent, tender and insightful voice. --Toni Hanner, Author of The Ravelling Braid and Gertrude
