    I wrote the foreword to this bad baby, which I will excerpt here I very much appreciate this deliberate decentering or disorienting, pulling us readers away from any safe, neat, predictable frames of reference the autobiographical I of the API poet, which has been done, overdone, and done again and again, to the point of our exhaustion And so as a poet and a reader, I very much appreciate the tones he affects tones that come close to the outer edges of that autobiographical, convention I wrote the foreword to this bad baby, which I will excerpt here I very much appreciate this deliberate decentering or disorienting, pulling us readers away from any safe, neat, predictable frames of reference the autobiographical I of the API poet, which has been done, overdone, and done again and again, to the point of our exhaustion And so as a poet and a reader, I very much appreciate the tones he affects tones that come close to the outer edges of that autobiographical, conventional API sentimentality only to chuck it aside this multivalent I, does not elicit your pity as a disenfranchised victim, alien, refugee, migrant Rather, and much to my relief, he is an emotionally, intellectually, and culturally complex, curious I, who is reaching ever outward, consuming, appropriating, and assimilating I mean this in the Star Trek Borg sense every bit of information he can access I very much dig as per my Borg reference this science fiction monstrosity behavior It s proactive and quite smart Ultimately, this collection makes me excited about possible future discussions, on how this is or is not Asian American poetry

  3. Sume Sume says:

    Fun, witty, universal yet oddly intimate, Bryan pulls his readers into alien yet familiar areas of the human experience From its pages, On the Other Side of the Eye whispers to our inner alien with a challenge to recognize the monster within all of us Yet, far from being judgmental or conclusive, Bryan narrates with the voice of a seeker whose infectious curiosity reminds us that the world is infinitely full of wonder.


  4. Chimar Chimar says:

    This effort rewinds heads from modern day tone into sweeping ancient kingdoms, history, margins of the soul, and the like Bodies of poetry laced with cloaked wit, planted within this book, recognise and absorb the reader, wandering about the writer s cultivated ground of warning.Bryan uses the poem as a whimsical mechanism in a hybrid format, to speak to a global cosmic state of urgency, leaving readers aware of and eyeing worlds transparent, with an upside down smilea must read

  8. Ji In Ji In says:

    Poetry often tends to make me go, Hmm, Oh, or That s nice Bryan s poetry makes me laugh, flip back the page to consider that last bit again, or cry out, What and I mean that in a good way On the Other Side of the Eye is at once other worldly and yet strangely familiar, as though I have already asked and explored those questions in a waking dream Nayrb, uoy knaht.

    Weather you are a lizard with a skyscraper between your toesOr some smaller fiendIn whom we fear to findToo close a mirror A small quote from book After reading the end notes in back of notes it seems like the author has his mind set on what he wanted to write his poems about Its not a themed poetry collection but a little dead for me My favorites below The Deep Ones The You Do Devil Fury Carbon
