    Within a limited set of parameters, with a limited way of defining this and at the risk of courting hyperbole I want to tell you that Christian Hawkey is a superhero. Christian Hawkey can do things in poems that normal humans can not do.
    —Mathias Svalina, Octopus Magazine

    His language is bright and fierce and playful, and his poetry seems to whisper loudly into your face, to pluck at your ribs, to move you into a huge people-sized aquarium and, once you’re acquainted with your fellow inhabitants, to fill with breathable green water through which you will see and feel everything from now on.
    —Joshua Marie Wilkinson, Cranky
