Call in to speak with the host
“R L Raymond writes poems like novels—if novels were lives that could be smashed against a wall in anger and pieced back together in the morning.”—Wolfgang Carstens
“Raymond rattles his lines off in short staccato bursts, like someone walking into a bar and emptying a clip from a Thompson gun into the décor—and a few chumps.”—Chris Yurkoski
"The beauty of the poems lies in the scattered, often shotgun detail."—George Anderson
“Pushed to the brink, with nothing seemingly left to lose, these poems lay it all down on the line with originality, perception and depth.”—John Yamrus
