Issues with Etiquette Sean OGorman

My second O’Gorman book of the year and the first release from Patchwork Poetry, Brad Morden’s imprint.

So obviously I am biased. Both Sean and Brad are good friends. Still, I think it is unvarnished truth to say that this is a very good book. Sean has a way of ripping off layers of his own skin in a way that gets you to empathize and feel what he is feeling, or some semblance of it, anyway.

He says he is a heartbreak poet, and that is true, but he is also a breaker of many other pieces of emotional carry-on.
