praise for flood deserts:
"Though Derek Piotr is capable of writing brilliant Eros poems, his element manifests its micro-processed gaze on the natural world. He is the antediluvian, postmodern version of Walt Whitman."
—Vi Khi Nao, Author of Fish in Exile
"Poised, tender, full of light."
—Nicholson Baker, Author of A Box of Matches
"If there is a better young poet than Derek Piotr in the U.S.A., don't tell me. I can't take it! Frank O'Hara said something about only three American poets being better than the movies, but I think Piotr would make him add a fourth."
—Kenneth Goldsmith, Founder of UbuWeb & Senior editor of PennSound
"Derek Piotr’s flood deserts colors the inner self as a vibrant, breathing world, lush with a rhythmic impressionism that animates the cycles of life. At once both oneiric and bucolic, flood deserts moves from interiority to awaken an anima that speaks to emergence and ultimately the ephemeral beauty of moment we live in. This is an astonishing first collection."
—David Joez Villaverde, CantoMundo fellow, Winner Black Warrior Review Prize for Poetry
