Point man may be best poet Wisconsin never knew
by Bill Berry
Kovac has the ability to say a ton with a few words. His poems can at once be tender,
sweet, sassy and sad. He is able to celebrate the little moments that pass by the
rest of us unnoticed.
My favorite time to read poetry is at night, just before turning out the lights,
when long paragraphs have no use or value unless I want to read them over and over
again. Under the reading light at the night stand, it is poetry that gets to the
point, telling a whole chapter full of stories in just a few lines. Richard Kovac's
slim book fits well in places like that.

This is a volume strong in the texture of a man's life. Richard is unafraid to place
out into a world that can be difficult, his depth of experience and his unfiltered
understanding of it....It's not always pretty in the way we think it should be,
but it is full of truth and its beauty arises from that.
