"Journey from here to HERE is a bouquet of love messages to the Beloved. Max Reif puts his musical skills to work - or to play - in language crafted to amuse and entertain the Beloved in verse. It's up and down, of course, praise and complaint, but most of all it's the genuine outcry of a seriously playful heart."
--from a forthcoming review by Eric Solibakke
"I am a foundling.
My Beloved has raised me
from a child to a man.
Now the mysteries
of manhood lie before me"--from "Manhood" (Part I)
