The poems in Alex Mattraw's third full-length collection RAW ANYONE offer the reader a deep poetic examination of the social and environmental toxins that affect our lives during these pandemic times. Cells, mouths, and rooms hold spaces for questions and declarations. In A Room, after Virginia Woolf, the author implores, 'Knock the head-room. / I ask you to live.' This compelling poetry collection burns with detoxifying intelligence and heart.--Maw Shein Win, author of Storage Unit for the Spirit House
