    One thought on “Faithful as the Ground”

    1. Shawnte Orion s chapbook, Faithful as the Ground is an absolutely charming read by turns funny and sweet, serious and slapstick, hilarious and tender His poems excavate love and marriage and parenthood by way of the carnival, the Road Runner, and the space program A humane and thoughtful poet I look forward to reading of his work

    2. As always, Orion delivers with this collection of poetry One of my favorite poets to read and to hear perform, hands down.
