"In Street Calligraphy, Jim Daniels continues to enchant and transport us across state lines while rooting us in tragic heart lessons and the triumphs of love. These are moving, unflinching poems—brutal and brave in their pulse to assert that even after a world where "We drew lies with chalk / and the truth with tar. / We lit our hair on fire / to cover the smell,"— there comes a beautiful reassembling of what it means to have people who sing you home." —Aimee Nezhukumathil
