“Ron Drummond’s poems teach balance, appreciation, and attentiveness to the beauty/horror of any given moment. Studies in contrast, they combine a breezy, playful wit with stunning moments of high emotional impact. It’s a potent one-two punch—or should I say kick? Eye-opening. Attention-getting. As perfectly timed as a Rockette.”
