Award winning poetry critic Ange Mlinko wrote of Parsons and his work, “The Renaissance man was once a courtly ideal; Parsons shows that it is a democratic ideal too??"warm-blooded, muscular, as companionable on the page as in the flesh.” Both tangible and cerebral, Parsons??s poetry lifts its readers into a new, transformational reality with a depth of insight that is truly exceptional.

and in an instant there is an ineffable
fire??"that forging force
on which so much more depends
than wheelbarrows & chickens.
