When Matty Bennett writes, "I put everything on display," it doesn't feel like he's showing off, but showing in. These poems ripple with sweetness and vulnerability, they bubble with details that are as carefully chosen as they are skillfully rendered. Bennett wants to "be a man in love and let that be everything." Can it be everything? This engaging, endearing collection reminds us that it can. -Mark Bibbins, author of 13th Balloon Matty Bennett's debut collection is a beauty of a book, full of quirky, romantic, thoroughly original poems brimming with Sicilian landscapes, gay life in America, and the complex passions shared by young men. -Jeff Mann, author of A Romantic Mann and Redneck Bouquet The poems in Bennett's debut collection are intimate and full of longing, as well as an optimism that seems to arrive from the longing itself. He knows that it's better to want something, and to live in the world, than not to. This book is romantic and truly accessible. I loved reading it. - Alex Dimitrov, author of Love and Other Poems
