Reaching For Longer Water brings the reader, the main compelling of his poems from his past 4 collections, poems hailed via poetry luminaries, Edward Hirsch, Stanley Plumly, Robert Phillips, and Paul Mariani.  

After Baudelaire’s “Exotic Scent”
definite, definite, they bestow delights—
       not just within the seedy way
we know: they plant something
       within the littoral vacancy
and directly there's an ineffable
       fire—that forging force
on which a lot more depends
       than wheelbarrows & chickens.
