"Danny’s poetic eroticism has struck the right balance between sexuality and sensuality. In 160 characters he has parsimoniously interwoven the oldest passion of what it’s to allow ones lack of inhibition to romp in the wilderness of freedom."

- Bruce George, Co-Founder of Def Poetry Jam 


"Ntozake said poems are urgent things. I need a love poem right now she said. I need it. Now. Sex feels the most urgent of all things. Thank you Danny for this sexy book of urgent things. We needed it right about now. "

- Michaela Angela Davis
