What people are saying about Blood Music
“In Blood Music, Frank Reardon’s poems are matches set aflame and dropped into the deep well of who we were, who we are, and who we might be, bringing to light all the small moments, the subtle revolutions, and the passing microcosms that we can never get back, save for these fleeting glimpses through poetry like Frank’s. Put together, these small moments reveal the sea change happening within all of us, whether we realize it or not. And from these poems, it is clear that Frank is well aware of the passing of time, the importance of final goodbyes, of the next bend in the wooded trail, of one foot placed before the other. It is an excellent collection that speaks honestly and without pretension, which is a rare and valued commodity in days such as these.”
— James H Duncan, editor of The Hobo Camp Review.
“After patching the soles of his boots and washing the dirt from his hands, you’ll find Frank Reardon at his typewriter with a rucksack of adventures and fingers itching to scream. In his new book Blood Music, Reardon peels back the weathered skin of past love affairs and familial relationships in order to expose the pulsing blood beneath. Never short of breath, the poems in Blood Music display modest confidence and genuine vulnerability, creating an organic, visceral collection with a heartbeat of its own.”
—Lawrence Gladview, author of Just Ignore the Beerstains.
“Like the sound of blood thrumming through veins during a life defining moment, so is the importance of Frank Reardon’s writing in Blood Music. His writing will make you feel as if your heart is in a vice or expanding transcendentally during moments of bliss. Blood Music is one hell of a ride.”
— Moriah LaChapell Editor of The Blue Hour Magazine.
