THE TIME OF HUNGER

MOTH

STATION LIGHTS

 

IN THE PRESS

At the last page, I realize Pettway has turned me into the eponymous moth, desperate for that beautiful and dangerous fire that burns in only the best poems but which seems to burn here in every poem. 

MICHAEL PRIHODA,

AFTER THE PAUSE

What sets [Pettway's poems] apart more than any other virtue is the subtle but insistent sense of irony they convey—one of the rarest and most valuable aspects of any art, but especially of poetry.

MILLER WILLIAMS, INAUGURAL POET

Pettway's beautiful sequences bring shocking clarity to the humanity in everyday moments. Highly recommend.
