Honoured to get a five star review on Amazon for my recent poetry collection “A World Where.” Thankyou Average Joe

Average Joe says


I enjoyed this collection immensely — the familiar turned on its head, the play of the language, the bone deep subjects Brookes chooses to tackle. Brookes uses language in a wonderful way, at once intimate to the point of blood and challenging. No easy trick. He has a wonderful and unique voice here which he maintains throughout, even as the collection gathers its rhythms. “Birth is a Time for Grief” is a particular favorite, as is “We Wait for Sick Sunblaze To.”
