"Every Crow In the Blue Sky, a collection of poetry by the Tucson author, Burgess Needle, is exquisite. Burgess is a poet who does what all writers wish to do. He translates life into poetry. The reader sees what he sees, breathes the same air, is transported to other places, is surprised and enlightened by his unique take on things, and above all, re-experiences the delicate mixture of emotions that defines what it means to be human."
000 Ruth Stone, recipient of the National Book Award
