    1. Perfect read for anyone experiencing loss. Crisp, clever, easy to relate to. Another uncomplicated poetry book that offers raw experience: realistic and emotional.

    5. I was as affected by this striking treatise on grief as much as I was by Bryan Borland's other poetry collection "My Life as Adam".You don't realize how much a person means to you until they are gone. The poems in "Less Fortunate Pirates" are attentive to the occurrences in life, whether major or minutiae of life, that are bent out of place or become hyper-perceptible because a person is not there to be a part of them.You don't remember a person as much as you do when memories are all that is le [...]
