 “The voice deployed by the poems ...has this mesmerizing surface of tranquility that belies and makes shimmer the possibility that ‘Wonder may well be all that’s left to us / when a starless night flowers in kisses”. This voice is musical, adaptable, wise, urban (in its nether stream of quickness), and sly, particularly via its engagement with paradoxas a condition of perception.”
 -Anselm Berrigan

"He penetrates unsparingly, out of generosity. His sentiments have shadows where he focuses his examination.... His poem, like a soliliquey, seems to open up while at the same time drilling inwards."
-John Godfrey

“There is in Vyt Bakaitis’ writing a tenderness and longing. In this generous collection, the poet unveils his Self with uncommon clarity and courage.”
-Anne Tardos
