"If you have the privilege, you already have the right to peruse Aileen Muhammad’s collection of work from 2009 to present. I have. You had been whisked away at the very first word of every piece she has written. Aileen will unleash your spirit and take you somewhere. And everyone of her riveting, healing, love pods, take you by the hand, walks you across the street to Karma, then, hurl you through non-stop imagery, imaginings, soul deep steep vision parables that make it exciting to you ’see’ for your Self what you have read. Sustained takes every line of verse and weaves them seamlessly with Bai’s (Carl Karni-Bain)consuming paintings that tour Persona, the soul of persona. Sustained places every verse and image on the tip of your tongue. Yes, Sustained speaks from you, through you, to where you must go. Aileen’s, Sustained, incurs nature, stretches longing to the nth degree. Both holy and sacred, Aileen defines the microcosmic juncture of the two, a formula for transcendence. Sustained traverses every revered poetic structure with a very delightful page of Haiku Feathers that manipulates the sparkle in your eye. But, oh my, the signature structural fierceness of Sustained Aileen Muhammad is a fearless language soloist. Sustained is a School of Thought entry to the annals." Nathan Ross Freeman
