Critics of Mystery Marvel is a lyrical and sensual collection that rakes through intimacies and disappointment with fearlessness and deep thought: language as a toy, love viewed from a thousand and one angles, places that cannot be claimed except in dreams and memory.  These poems are the anticipation of a first kiss…bare feet padding into a living room…sex for the last time with the person you love most.  — Laila Halaby, My Name on His Tongue: Poems
