No Stranger Than My Own

September 24th, 2013  |  Published in Michael J. Henry, Poetry  |  3 Comments

Michael Henry’s poems are a skilled, luminous negotiation with the surfaces of life and the shapes of memory. His poems, shot through with feeling and perfectly crafted, are as happy sounding the dark classical themes of poetry as they are finding the saving glisten of the everyday.
