2017: Responses to ‘Decoding Dust’ and to BW Powe

“Evocative of amazing and hitherto unsuspected modes of communication and communion… I hope it receives the notices and reviews it deserves… A distinctive and stylish accomplishment.”
-John Robert Colombo, author, critic, poet, chronicler of quotations

“… A third-eye on fire.”DecodingDust_Cover-FNL2-HiRez (1)
-Elana Wolff, poet

“My god. I am blown away by the bardic power if this poetry. Thank you so much for putting it out into the world, which needs it so… Simply numinous.”
-J.F. Martel, critic, author, essayist, filmmaker

“The poet sings throughout the book, which is a strange mixture of the elegiac and the celebratory -a cacophony of voices, murmurs, whispers, cries… All of Powe’s book, in prose or poetry, incarnate being that sings.”
-J.S. Porter, poet, essayist, columnist for Dialogue

“An extraordinary work.”
-Philip Marchand, author, critic, National Post columnist

“[Powe] uncovers dimensions that are so obviously a part of our experiences yet so rarely commented on… Whatever fragments of life or vision we have, we’ve got to hold onto them as what we’ve got… We’ve got to search for what’s left over, what inspiration remains… That’s when we find ourselves ‘decoding dust’… in emotional arches and longings, yearning… in the language that speaks to the gravity of life. The gravity that the spoils of our contemporary early 21st century existence sometimes allows us to float through effortlessly, carelessly, unremarkably. [Powe’s] work is in defiance of the blah. I was reached by the sheer imagination and the attention to detail in this work. Whatever changes it’s made in me are just beginning.  … This is writing for out times.”
-Karl Leschinsky, writer, teacher, film-critic
