"In Theories on Wreckage, the narrator lets us in spaces they think they do not exist. “I pull at the corner of my mouth until I curl a / crooked smile, force her to see that I am fine and / I am well.", exuding a thematic struggle of being something they are not. The poems swell for the reader, like a lit match devouring, aching, until posed with: “What do you do when the mirror before you / reflects a home you’ve never known? / Break it.”—it is here that the collection engulfs but it is not the only match left to light." - Tyler Pufpaff, author of A Quarter Life
