The choice of poems is instructive. From revealing his desire for a caring mother to touching on issues of domestic violence, as shown in “redemption” to social issues such as rape, to the treatment of love – and its mockery and hopelessness, Ace is focused on telling a story in a unique way, a way totally different from the familiar. His simplistic approach makes his telling more relevant. His themes are connecting, his language peels the skin on the reader‟s body. The delicateness, an almost unassuming use of language, makes the poems so striking that the reader will read many times to fully grasp the richness of each poem, without being able to let go at the first read. The ability to achieve this is of great note.
