    Michael Potts is a master of finding a macabre twist for his poems. Each poem is a delicious little morsel best read at least twice. Disturbing, thought provoking, and sometimes darkly humorous, HIDING FROM THE REAPER will keep you coming back for more like a sinfully satisfying box of dark chocolate, and once gone, will have you wishing for more. My favorite was "Uncle Clark's Change," where Uncle Clark is not quite himself anymore. Other favorites include, "Black Moths," "Cleaning Prey on Than Michael Potts is a master of finding a macabre twist for his poems. Each poem is a delicious little morsel best read at least twice.

    I enjoyed most of these poems. They were emotive, descriptive and made me think. Each one told a story. I actually wrote notes beside most of them detailing the imagery and word choices I liked best. Some of the latter poems did feel a bit out of place in comparison to the others as they were either geared for a younger audience or from a child-like POV. For the majority of poems, there were clear themes: loss, unseen reality, freedom, timelessness, duplicity, escape, mindless horror, futility e I enjoyed most of these poems.

Some of the latter poems did feel a bit out of place in comparison to the others as they were either geared for a younger audience or from a child-like POV. For the majority of poems, there were clear themes: loss, unseen reality, freedom, timelessness, duplicity, escape, mindless horror, futility etc. Many were Lovecraftian and quite fun to read. The layout was good, with each poem given its own page. If you enjoy creepy poetry that makes you ponder, this is a good little collection.
