David Dephy’s exuberant poems shout from the streets of Georgia to New York City. His work is honest and returns again and again to the idea of eternal hope, and freedom, despite the circumstances. When he writes, “The trust is the heart of prescience,” the reader is reminded that there is something eternal for Dephy and at the heart of everything, there must be acceptance. - Gloria Monaghan is an award-winning poet, author of the poetry books Flawed (Finishing Line Press, 2011) The Garden (Flutter Press, 2015) False Spring (Adelaide Books, 2019) Hydrangea (Kelsay Press, 2020)
When I first saw David Dephy read “Eastern Star,” I thought of William Blake. It was an instinctive response, rather than critical or intellectual, born of the poem’s aphoristic intelligence, its refusal to reduce the world to the commonplace. That same engagement shimmers through this book, when the poet’s reflection in the mirror asks, “Would life be better if we could forget the past … forget the present?” And again, “Build or destroy — there is one choice, / there is no judge …” I think Mr. Blake would be pleased. - Aaron Fischer is an award-winning poet.

The love affair David Dephy is having with the world runs like “a stream of childhood’s miracles” through his poems: “a godhead of a rushing river that sweeps us along.” Dephy doesn’t reserve this cosmic Whitmanesque for himself alone: “You are better, I am convinced.” We are better, certainly, for the wild, sweet imagination coursing through Dephy’s Eastern Star. - Stephen Frech is an award-winning poet author of four volumes of poetry: Toward Evening and the Day Far Spent (Kent State University Press, 1995) If Not For These Wrinkles of Darkness (White Pine Press, 2001) The Dark Villages of Childhood (Midwest Writing Center, 2009) A Palace of Strangers Is No City (ervena Barva Press, 2011)
