Laodicea was a Friday Pick at B O D Y.  Thanks to Tomáš Suchánek for a kind review.

"Ekstrand deconstructs his experience, be it historical, philosophical or profoundly personal, so the reader concords with the about-to-go-extinct species of an image on the brim of its line or stanza, and thus fulfils it with his empathy and understanding for its destitute state. For were it not for us “imagining,” there would be blatantly no 'landscape that one / could throw rocks into.'"
