"Like a perfectly shot and detailed movie, in which viewers notice something new with each screening, 'Refuge/es' can be read again and again, and another beautifully rendered phrase will steal out and snag you. Poetry lovers will appreciate this collection, and Broek's determinedly innovative point of view may transform those new to this form into believers." —Shelf Awareness
