Rabid unicorn / in a small glass box / Oddly salubrious / and white / and deformed / prepares for heaven / by / raising / on bent leg /
The coincidence of reality and mind takes on many guises throughout [the poems] but the reader luckily does not have to interrogate the poet's biography or try to identify those moments where the worlds of thought and experience crossover : the reader can happily be swept along with the modulations of the verse. For one of Frater's abilities was to allow the reader to 'be in' the moment of the poem, and to give over to the rising and falling rhythms and assonances of a poem... -- Tim Cahill, 2011 (from) Benjamin Frater, an afterword
