A wry seriousness that belies the slyly hilarious,

the commonplace made uncommon in its place.

Soul on Standby is a hybrid of the surreal and the narrative. It exposes the under layers, the subtext, of experience in a voice that registers common patterns of speech and startles with the unexpected. Its themes are broad, its stories chiseled out of the quotidian, its miniature worlds surprising and revealing – each poem engages the reader in a dialogue that explores what the portrait artist, Lucian Freud, meant when he said, "What can be more surreal than a nose between two eyes?"
