"Collins's poetry rises out of the core of being and seeing—with a touch of Revelations—always searching for the ethereal alongside the earthy low, arriving at the stillpoint of Self. It takes the reader to places of witness where meaning matters; Collins's language of muscular grace made of experience and deep dreaming crosses landscapes to help reimagine our worlds."—Yusef Komunyakaa
