"Smote is a book of the dark reality of our daily existence; it is a book of abiding grace."-Robert Olen Butler
I release you like the crank-addled truck driver
releases his cargo at the midnight dock
until the warehouse is one in a trail
of crumbs, little light left on behind him.

"Kimbrell (My Psychic) pushes his readers to the limit in his frenetic and unceasingly visceral third collection....Kimbrell's poems will doubtless come crashing back as unexpected, haunting nodes of language." -Publishers Weekly "The poems in Smote speak of loss and the wanting of more life.... [Kimbrell] lets us feel what cannot be expressed, by any words." -NewPages
