Molecular Jam cover

    Dan Raphael's poetic saxophone often sounds like two horns, bass, and drums jamming together improvisationally at the interwoven, gyred-up currents and cusps of this milennium becoming the next ... These poems are incredibly unique and evocative. They are highly intelligent Earth poems that face problems by exploring and by changing the nature of the questions. They are often humorous and at once intensely serious. They are folksy almost in their voice and simultaneously a new branch of high surrealism -- grounded in knowing and the creative energy of what is.
    James Grabill, winner of the 1995 Oregon Book Award
    Dan Raphael is one of the progenitors of what I refer to as the 'real underground' of the contemporary poetry scene ... Like the best of his contemporaries, Jake Berry or Will Alexander, Raphael takes his language into the swiftly developing chasms of new sci-tech terminology, while still maintaining his balance of humor. Clearly, in reading his text, we are past the end of the 20th century. We are glimpsing through a shattered kaleidoscope the socio-economic wreck of the Jeffersonian ideal. '... don't admit the damage, control the chaos ...'
    Ivan Argüelles
