Burning It Down Review... stay tuned for more.

"In Burning It Down, Darren Demaree guides the reader through a surreal night’s escapades. Laced with pockets of acerbic humor that lay bare a bruised and tender insight, his tercets tap a vein of anger, fury, hurt, and betrayal. Demaree makes you believe it when he writes “We were loud/enough to become vessels/& drunk enough not to care.” Here, fire is a cleansing agent and revenge fantasy coming for anyone who has turned their back on nature and humanity. Writing from the bosom of Ohio, he lets us know that “the smoke always begins from a necessary place” and that no one is getting away with it."
