Praise for Mānoa Makai:
While it is true that I have a tender spot in my heart for Hawaii, it is truer that I am drawn to poetry with textured diction: tidewrack, open-mouthed, blinkered, wheeze. The language itself is an archipelago, drawing me inside the circle of story and scene. It is true, too, that Mānoa Makai is moving.
