“These spare light-filled hymns sing the praises of a sweet journeyman’s everyday life — from working on the assembly line at Ford Motor Plant in Detroit to simply acknowledging the sacred act of breathing. These poems prove that the mystic still walks among us, works with us side by side – mining exuberance in beautifully muddy boots.”
~ Dian Sousa, past Poet Laureate for the City of San Luis Obispo.
“When Kevin Patrick Sullivan reads, you hear Celtic courage, ageless and refreshing, singing in the lines. Kevin’s voice reflects acuity of vision, vitality, honesty. His work ethic is inspiration for all poets, young and old. He is director of the nationally respected “Corners of the Mouth” readings at San Luis Obispo’s venerable and beloved mecca of the arts, Linnaea’s Café.”
~ Ray Clark Dickson, First Poet Laureate, City and County, San Luis Obispo
“To listen to Kevin Patrick Sullivan is to awake into the original astonishment of the poetic word. His verb stems like a flash from a hidden mystery which is beyond heart, brains and intellect. The good fortune of my destiny has made me the witness of this miracle.”
~ Hernan Castellano-Giron, past Poet Laureate for the City and County of San Luis Obispo
