Jon-Michael Frank's poems are fantastically forlorn, seductively solitary. The essence of Nostalgia Flower is one of wilting and Frank finds endless awe in that kind of abandonment. Like a rainbow above a graveyard, there is something reckless within memory and through these poems that spirit is exposed as something much more fragile, something we can hold in our hands deciding whether or not to toss out. Similar to the memories that never make way out of your chest, we know Nostalgia Flower is a grimoire you will hold on to forever.
