Here's what the publisher had to say about this chapbook:
"In dear little fist, Tomasko crafts a collection that mirrors the many ways a heart can beat, sometimes frantic, sometimes steady, and sometimes strikingly quiet. Moving from poignant to funny and back and dealing with a palpable sense of angst connected to the questions of what it means when you can't trust your heart, Tomasko delivers moments of softness, contemplation, and wanting that resound in rhythms reflecting arrhythmia. The next moment is not always what you expect, but you must carry on with it and follow where they lead."
