Armor, Amour

Ninebark Press

The poems of Armor, Amour reveal a serious mind wrestling with important subjects. The book is compulsively readable despite its gravity. It rewards the reader’s attention with a depth that continues to reveal itself. 

--Melissa Ginsburg, Colorado Review

The Decadent Lovely

Main Street Rag

Pence connects with the universal through a personal return through childhood, and the adult-child’s most unsettling moments, those epiphanies in which, we realize our parents are human, their progression toward aging real, their mortality an affront, and in a moment of great vulnerability, Pence is able to find levity, the joy of connection.  Even Galileo could not calculate the infinite of separation.


Maureen Alsop, Poemeleon
