Some Love for Track & Trace

Just got word today that Track & Trace is reviewed in the new issue of FreeFall Magazine, by Micheline Maylor. It's a very enthusiastic appraisal. I'll wait till the mag itself is further past its publication date to post the whole review, but here are a few snippets:

Everything poetry should be: reflective and linguistically aware, imagistic, connected to human emotion and experience (Sorry Bök). But, wait, I forgot, delightful.


I stopped in my tracks (pun intended) reading “Cormorant”. Here Wells shows why he is earning his reputation as one of Canada’s best poets.


"Fool's Errand" ... has all the underpinnings of old world craft I find lacking in tired free verse and avant garde. This is where Wells excels. This is where our poetry, Canadian Poetry, reaches world standard.
