Reviews of Tony’s poetry

  • Trust words like these, offered with a quiet assurance that invariably forecasts trustworthiness and truth. — Kaye Gibbons
  • Tony Reevy’s “Lightning in Wartime” is as poignant as it is unsettling. At every turn in these two dozen poems, we wonder deeply over what may have been gained, at what has been lost. — Bland Simpson
