“In Pocketing Feathers, J.D. Isip takes an elegance I can only say is equaled by Whitman and created a complete photo album of his life in, sometimes, Bukowski-esque bare-knuckle terms.  His ideas are complete and the music his words create when read aloud is its own, multi-genre soundtrack.  I am amazed at the heart of light even in his most painful memories.  Isip does not pull punches.  He does not write for shock value.  The last thing this gentleman is looking for is pity.  No, Pocketing Feathers is an honest look into a tumultuous life where self-discovery has its own, unique jazz and growing pains.”

—Clifford Brooks, Pulitzer-nominated author of The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics

“Sarah Thursday’s poems feel personal, as though we’re standing at her lighted windows—intimate glimpses of the poet’s heart, its vulnerabilities, its scars. The colors of her journey: green jealousy and red surrender, black loneliness, the bruised purple of longing: “It’s not his tongue,/ or its softness, but/ the fullness of my mouth/ at its opening.” The dark gray of ache: “Lie to my body, if need be until/ I don’t need to remember why.” And love, the sum of all colors. These poems are honest, real, and rich in image and introspection. They keep us at her window until long past midnight.” —Ricki Mandeville, A Thin Strand of Lights
