“Disinheritance contends intimately with loss, to be sure – but it also proposes the poem as a way to remember, to persist, to be oneself, to believe.”

—Joan Naviyuk Kane

“There is eternal longing in these poems. A yearning for what cannot be understood. A song for what simply is. A distance beyond human measurement.”

—Zubair Ahmed

“Let these poems sing to you too. Let them hold you in that raw place of hope, let them be ships mooring us to the wild / bottomless sea.”

—Daniela Elza

“Williams’ lyric proto-language—elemental, archetypal, primordial—subsumes barriers of time and space. His poems create their own inheritance.”

—Paulann Petersen, Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita
