|With a seemingly effortless command of language, David

questions come more readily than answers.

the whimsical and the weighty with a deft mastery of
Barbara Schermack, Head Start Director, Cranston,
An elegant little book with a beautiful lyrical
tautness, filled with deeply personal statements that
reveal universal human truths.
Marilyn Karzen, Special Education Teacher, Evanston,
A collection replete with wit and craft, but the real
gifts here are the insights into telling moments by a
voice you come to care about.

Lieberman’s ability to merge imagery with the musical
properties of language produces poetic effects that
are intriguing and sometimes haunting.
Tom Williams, Editor, RTC Magazine, Scotts Valley,
The poems … are about the things we most often mythologize in our
lives, love and sex and death, and almost all reveal moments of beauty
and tenderness and grief in a way that makes us see in a new
way. Lieberman accomplishes this primarily through the music of his
language, the singing of someone who is in love with words and the way
words sound in our mouths when we say them, and the way sound makes a
meaning all its own, separate from, but at the same time interwoven
with, the lexical meaning of what is being delivered.
