"Marc Awodey writes with mesmerizing intensity. His poems are passionate displays of cadence and rhythm; swirls of drunken, expanding metaphor, all artfully choreographed within an elegant framework of stories. Telegrams from the Psych Ward resonates with one of the most original poetic voices I've encountered in years." -Catherine A. Salmons, (poet, literary critic The Boston Phoenix; Cambridge, MA)

"Awodey is certainly one of the most startlingly
original poetic voices I have heard for a good while, and I note that his concerns are universal, not just local, as is the case with so many overseas poets. However, many of his images are local, as in ("Rain"), "exuberence flowed flowed through flames of hair from / blasts of rain / sustained in open air on sixty miles / of North America". Awodey's work is sustained power seldom lax, certainly never unenthusiastic and quite simply, in an age where just about anything masquerading as poetry can get onto at least an electronic magazine or personal page, is astounding stuff." -Trevor Reeves. Southern Ocean Review (New Zealand)
Excerpt
"Today i pulled out one of my teeth
just thinking
about the old men reading
their poems at my house
last night

all reverent, awaiting waves
exchanging memories
comparing prisons
clandestine moves
in images all
reeking
of
Merwin-"
