“These are elegant, haunting poems – with flashes of wit and humor — fit for our own dance of death. Essential reading for our time.”

Nancy Schoenberger,
author of Long Like a River
and Dangerous Muse

 

“Impeccable work from a versatile poet at the height of his alchemical powers.”

– John Amen,
Editor, Pedestal Magazine

 

“Among the Ruins/Entre las ruinas depicts a world that sometimes seems in the verge of collapse but that redeems itself under the readers’ eyes, when we allow poetry speak for itself.”

– Omar Villasana Cardoza,
author of Árbol de tu olvido

“Franklin has traveled widely and loved hard. His range is enormous and lyrical: portraits of prisons, men on the street in Miami, the weather in Venice; he evokes San Juan de La Cruz, Cavafy, Nietzsche and Goya. He provokes us to see ‘the sobbing and the wounds/ too small to notice.'”

– Sean Thomas Dougherty,
author of The Second O of Sorrow
