what people are saying about drew

"Drew is the Earth's grapevine, the transcendent delivery man, the vocable giver, the dispatcher of the unremembered, the confabulating oath keeper, the stand-in for the intimate grief that holds us in thrall. His poems are bodies of light seen by startled new eyes and long after he speaks they weave the unconscious, stitching us to our collective and uncertain future."
- Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest and The Ecology of Commerce
