Damon Ferrell Marbut devastates the notion of apology in poetry with a tender recklessness in Little Human Accidents, poems that examine a personal evolution of sexuality and identity while treating the unavoidable step towards adulthood like a punching bag, especially in his free flowing self reflexive poems like Mornings Like This and So What.
“There is a kind of perfect combination of fragility and intensity in Damon Ferrell Marbut’s poetry that sneaks up on you as it builds. Like a prize fighter who waits for the right moment to knock the breath out of you, Marbut’s poems are part awe, part intimidation, and all heart. Brace yourself for this collection.”

The poems are very candid, conversational, sentimental at times and unapologetic and raw in many others. It’s an honest, no frills, no bells and whistles collection anyone can find something to relate to.
