Review of Living Things

Collin wrote a review of my chapbook over at The Pedestal. (Thanks!) Click to the quote to read the whole review:

Jensen could have easily bogged Living Things down with melancholy and self-pity, and while you might shed a few tears, it won’t be in the places you might expect. There’s a sharp clarity and acceptance of death in these poems, yet both the narrator and the dead lover live and breathe on these black and white pages. There’s a cinematic quality to the scenes and details. It’s a short film waiting to be made, with Jensen’s words as dialog or voice-over.
