Walton is a masterful artisan with language in poems that at the same time completely steer clear of artifice. Careering explorations carry a great sense of unruffled stillness – this book is a well travelled hardwood chest filled with glittering curios, feathers, loss and tranquillity. The future of this art form lies in experiential reading of fully fleshed works like these. – Les Wicks.
