“Mr. White’s poems cast a bright light on the intricate and fragile desires, hope, and commitments that drive us toward and away from each other. Disappointment in both self and the other (“The Arrangement”), tenderness and ambiguity in loving (“The Love”), fear and revenge (“The Fight”), passion (“The Fcuk”), conditioned and thwarted violence (“The War”), and other human conditions, dreams, and longing come under the poet’s scrutiny in both free verse and rhymed poems. His theme is human nature—that which bonds us could just as easily separate us. We are vulnerable beings, but we do persist.” -Reader Review
